Larine Chung is a Seattle based artist painting in the tradition of contemporary realism. Fueled by her unyielding curiosity, Chung's works are rooted in everyday life. Her mixed cultural backgrounds inform her art, lacing her eastern sensibility with the depiction of western motifs, presenting underlying tension of duality merging into oneness.
Chung trained in the Aristides Atelier (2006-2009) after receiving her BFA from the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Chung continues to explore the language of painting after graduation with Antony Ryder, Spanish painters Golucho and Antonio Lopez Garcia. Prior to her pursuit in art, Chung majored in Biochemistry and was trained as a classical pianist in her youth. Chung has had 7 solo shows thus far with an upcoming one scheduled to be held in the Chinese University of Hong Kong in spring 2022. She was the recipient of the Waterway fellowship at Studio Escalier, France, Robert DeZordo scholarship and Gregory Robinson Scholarship. Her works has been featured in American Art Collector, Leonardo art guide, (Spain), Manifest Gallery INPA9 and INDA13, King 5 Evening Magazine, Classical King FM, the Stranger, Seattle Chinese Time and Classical Painting Atelier by Aristides. Chung is also the founder of the Eastside Artists Collaborative with the vision of fostering the artistic growth for her local community.
Atelier tradition is a time tested method in learning formal elements of art based on direct observation. Through systematic step-by-step teaching, in-depth analysis of master works and vigorous daily practice from life, students would learn how to use the formal elements of painting such as space, value, and color to depict the world around expressing their viewpoints in art. I truly believe that art is a language that can be taught and learnt. Together with the team of excellent teaching artists at the Classical atelier, I would like to bring forth calm yet focus learning environment to aid mastering their techniques and artistic vision.
