San Francisco-based Fine Artist Yi Shin Chiang came to the U.S. from her native Taiwan to complete her BFA in Illustration and Masters of Fine Art at the Academy of Art University. She is highly skilled across a range of disciplines including portraiture, figurative, landscape, and cityscapes, but is perhaps best known for her distinctive combination of realism and abstraction, in which she creates realistic works that explore the mood and presentation of ambiguity in her subject. She regularly features her work in prominent exhibitions at galleries around the world including at the Taiwan Museum of Fine Art, San Francisco’s renowned Palace of Fine Arts, the Arata Fine Art Gallery, San Francisco’s Studio Gallery, the Limner Gallery, in Hudson, New York, and the Coos Art Museum in Oregon. She is a multi-award winning artist having won competitive juried exhibitions such as: the 19th Annual de Young juried showcase Divergence: Emerging Legacies, an Art Event at San Francisco’s world famous de Young Museum for which she was a Finalist; the Dab Art show at HUD Gallery in Ventura California, for which she was awarded “Best in Show;” the Coos Art Museum’s Expressions West 2015 where she was awarded an “Honorable Mention;” and the third annual Nude Attitude Exhibition of the Peoria Art Guild Gallery, in Illinois for which she was an esteemed Finalist. Yi Shin continues to make enormously important contributions to the regional, national, and international art scenes with her unique style, from her home in San Francisco.
