Alexander Chen – Panorama

Our featured artist for August is internationally-renowed artist Alexander Chen. Born in Canton, China in 1952, Alexander began his formal art education at the Central Academy of Fine Arts and the Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts. Inspired by his various travels and his eventual emigration to the United States in 1989, Chen’s paintings and pen and ink drawings often feature national parks, cityscapes, countryside views, and the pulsing energy of New York City, Tokyo, and Las Vegas. Brilliantly colored and intricately detailed, the vivid images he creates have been collected and lauded around the world.

Opening will coincide with the August Music on Chicago festival held by the gallery. Music on Chicago is a summer outdoor live music series and beer garden,
