Bi Yuan Cheng
Born and raised in Jinan, China, the career of Bi Yuan Cheng as an artist of various mediums began in his home country.
Under the guidance and encouragement of his father, Bi began practicing art at age five. At the tender age of eleven, Bi was taken under the wing of one of most prestigious art professors in the country to learn landscaping, watercolour and oil. This mentorship would go on for another ten years and prove to be a great factor in his later successful career in art.
By 1975, Bi had already established himself as an accomplished art instructor in a Jinan local art club. In 1979, Bi moved on to attend the ZiangXi Art University, earning himself a Bachelor Degree in Art. Dozens of his pieces were collected and displayed by the Art Museum at the University. After graduating in 1983, Bi went on to work in landscaping and sculptural design at Shandong Architectural Company.
With his rising career in sculptural design, the Province of Shandong gave Bi the highly distinguished and recognized title as Chinese Art Master in 1987.
Immigrating to Canada in 1990 was a big step for Bi Yuan Cheng, who presently lives in White Rock British Columbia. Bi started his own art studio in 1992 and has found his prominent work in original oil and acrylic painting as well as in mural painting. For the last ten years, Bi has painted over 50 murals throughout Alberta.
