Po Pin Lin, San Francisco
Art education: Currently studying for a master’s degree in fine art at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco, CA.
Style of work: Primarily an impressionistic landscape and cityscape painter.
Second-choice career: “Being an artist is my dream. I don’t have a second career choice.”
Favorite artist: “The Russian Impressionists inspire me.”
Favorite subject: “I’m not afraid to paint anything. I like figures, still lifes, and landscape, but landscape and city scenes are my favorite.”
Other passions: Bowling and basketball.
Favorite studio music: Classical. “I particularly like Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. I like to play it over and over again.
Best art trip: “I would like to go back to Taiwan because I grew up there and it’s beautiful. After that, Canada and Venice, Italy.”
Best advice received: “Keep your paintbrushes wet everyday. A true artist is not about making his drawings look like the real things but about expressing his inner- most feeling and emotions.
Next big goal: To travel the world and explore different countries, cultures, and traditions. Through canvas, colors, and brushes he wants to share what he sees.
Creative spark: Beautiful sights- including peaceful farms, fierce ocean waves, changing skies, fragile street flowers, and colorful city life.
