Artist of the moment………Shaw-Hwei Dong


Shaw-Hwei Dong is a fantastic painter of plants. Shaw-Hwei Dong was born in China in the year 1962. For her artistic education Dong attended the National Taiwan Normal University where she studied fine art.

Dong uses her own house and plants for her art. What I like most about her work is the fact its simple but she works with the shapes so often she can manipulate them so the work has a lot of motion to it. I also enjoy her perspective, many times she paints looking down on the plant so we just have the plant and a table or carpet.

She reminds of the master still life painter Giorgio Morandi, who made wonderful still life paintings using objects found around his house and studio.

One series well received by the artist dealt with the same plants and flowers, painted at different times of the day.

Price range information: Original works in oils range from $15,000 to $60,000.

Happy Mother’s Day!
