Artistic inspiration began at an early age for William Liao. Growing up in Beijing, China after the Cultural Revolution, he was surrounded by classical Chinese culture as well as new European art. These are the influences which continue to define and inspire his work today. With seven years of professional training, he graduated from Beijing Normal University, with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Arts.

Specializing in florals, landscapes and figurative works, William’s paintings combine traditional mediums with modern techniques, providing his audience with another dimension of experience.

Recognized for his talent, William has won the Art Battle Vancouver, received the Silver Medal at the Signature Medal Show at Federation Gallery, as well as First Place in the Acrylics in Action Show.
