Leader of the Tribe by Z. S. Liang
Z.S. Liang was born in China and raised in a family of artists. He studied at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing and Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in Guangzhou. Liang furthered his art study in the United States in 1982. He earned his BFA in painting at Massachusetts College of Arts in 1986 and his MFA in Painting at Boston University in 1989.
Liang received his great inspiration in this country while studying and painting the Wampanoag Indian culture at the Outdoor Museum. This newfound interest fired his imagination, and he began to focus his painting primarily on Native American Indian cultures.
During the ensuring years of field research, he has made many connections and friends among Native tribes from the East coast to the Rocky Mountains. Liang’s obvious passion for the Indians as a people, coupled with his emphasis on historical accuracy, adds strength and truth to his portrayals.
Liang’s work has been featured in Art of the West, South West Art, Western Art Collectors, Artists and International Artists Magazines. He is represented by Trailside Galleries in Jackson, Wyoming and Scottsdale, Arizona.
Liang and his family reside in Southern California.
