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 and a major in Fine Arts.
Now living in Vancouver, William finds inspiration for spectacular cityscapes in his new home. His paintings combine traditional mediums with modern techniques, providing his audience with another dimension of experience. In 2017, William won the Art Battle Vancouver and First Place in the Acrylics in Action show.
