ARTIST: Bi Yuan Cheng

RESIDES:  BC, Canada
EDUCATION : ZiangXi Art University, Bachelor degree in Art.
Bi was taken under the wing of one of China’s most prestigious art professors to learn landscaping, watercolour and oil. This mentorship would go on another ten years and prove to be a great factor in Bi’s later successful career in art.

CAREER HISTORY:
Born in 1957 and raised in Jinan, China, Yuan Cheng Bi’s career as an artist of various mediums began in his home country. Under the guidance and encouragement of his father, Bi began practicing art at age five.

By 1975, Bi had already established himself as an accomplished art instructor in Jinan’s Art Club. Dozens of Bi’s pieces were collected by the ZiangXi University’s art museum during the 80s..

After graduating in 1983, Bi went on to work in landscaping and sculptural design at Shandong Architectural Company. In 1985, Bi’s sculpture titled “Teasing Swan” received second place in a provincial art competition and was recreated in marble, standing two meters tall for the City of Jinan’s Central Park.

Bi’s success in sculpture continued on the next year when he was chosen over one hundred competitors from around the nation to design the sculptural landmark for Shandong Stadium – the province’s largest sports facility. The finished product was a metal and concrete sculpture standing thirty meters high, symbolizing the unification of common people through sport. His work for the city continued on in 1989 for China’s National Day, when Bi designed a fountain in Jinan Centre Square filled with water lilies, the city’s official flower.

With his rising career in sculptural design, in 1987 the Province of Shandong gave Bi the nation’s highly distinguished and recognized title as a Chinese Art Master.

In 1989 Bi was accepted into the prestigious Chinese Encyclopedia of Art.

Immigrating to Canada in 1990 was a big step for Yuan Cheng Bi. He settled in Edmonton, Alberta for a period of 18 years and presently lives in Victoria, British Columbia. Bi started his own art studio in 1992 and works predominantly in oils and acrylics as well as mural painting. For the last ten years Bi has painted over fifty murals throughout Alberta, one of the most notable at The International Edmonton Airport and the Drayton Valley legion.

Bi Y Cheng has been commissioned by various corporations. In 2006 – 2007, he created ten commissioned paintings depicting their history for the new June Warren Building in Edmonton, Alberta. He created four conceptual paintings for Ready Engineering depicting the history of engineering in the world. He has often been called upon for his skill in capturing an abstract idea or a definitive portrait.

Ferruginous Hawk
by Carel Brest van Kempen

“Ferruginous Hawks range through much of western North America, where they prefer country that is open and wild. The largest hawk species on the continent, they are very eagle-like, with long wings, heavy bill and legs that are feathered to their short and powerful toes. Adults are typically white beneath, with a rusty back and “leggings,” but some individuals are mostly dark chocolate brown with varying amounts of rufous.”

Probaoscis Monkey

“Proboscis Monkeys are found only on the island of Borneo, where they inhabit forests along the coast and some large rivers. Adult males are easily recognized by their outsize schnozzes. The Malay people called them “orang belanda” (white man), the same name they used for Dutch settlers.”

His work has been exhibited in major juried art shows and events.

His paintings have been selected for print and inclusion in programs with National Wild Turkey Federation, and The Friends of
NRA .

ABOUT LUKE BUCK’S TECHNIQUE
An intense painter, Buck loses himself in the experience and prefers to work without any distractions. From the many reference photos he takes, he may select only a small section of a photo for a painting. Although Luke indulges into artistic license to create the feeling of the moment he tries to maintain the accuracy of the scene. This is a part of preserving the vanishing subject matter. Although Buck works with oils and acrylics, he prefers watercolours for their spontaneity and versatility. Luke is primarily a studio painter but also enjoys “plein aire” painting. “This keeps an artist alert and fresh.” he says.

The Flat Rock Bend
by Luke Buck

“I have many fond childhood memories of exploring and prowling the creeks in the woods in my childhood with my brothers and cousins. So often we would find ourselves going beyond our limit by curiosity of what is around that next bend? This scene on Flat Rock River, reminded me of those days and the temptation of venturing around one more bend, and going just a little too far and making the trip back home seem much longer. This particular bend was right in front of an old Boy Scout Camp, “Flat Rock Cave”, now abandoned, but still among my favorite spots to paint.”

Flat Rock Fall
by Luke Buck

“This old cabin is one of three-in-a-row that sit along the Flat-Rock River not far from my home and it always reminded me of my childhood days when my Dad used to take us camping and fishing along the river. Although during those times we never had the luxury of a cabin, this river setting still brings back those fond memories with Dad and my brothers and our great camping trips. The old cabins are still there & I’ve painted one or another of them several times, each time in different seasons, or different mediums & size, but they always make a fun painting subject.”

ARTIST: Darrell Bush

EDUCATION: Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Northern Illinois University

ACCOMPLISHMENTS:
His career hit the ground running in 1987, after winning two national stamp competitions for the state of Minnesota, and Idaho. Darrell’s success continued when he was named among America’s 12 most popular artist by four different national art publications.  Art publications such as USArt magazine conducted these polls annually by surveying North American art galleries, and placed Darrell with high rankings for several years. The same publication named him a Rising Star in 1995.  Inform Art magazine named him one of the Top Ten Hottest New Artists in 1994. Darrell’s work has also been juried into many fine art shows where he has received several “Best of Show” awards. In 1997, Darrell was named “Artist of the Year” at the Wildlife, Western, and Americana Art Show in Minneapolis, MN.

Two of his lithographs hang in the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library and his work was also part of a special reception at the prestigious Gilcrease Museum in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  Actor Burt Reynolds and celebrity animal expert Jack Hanna also own his work.

Darrell has also contributed several print editions to The Boy Scouts of  America fund-raising programs. In addition, a number of conservation organizations have also benefited from his generosity including The National Fish and Wildlife Federation, Ducks Unlimited, Pheasants Forever and The National Wild Turkey Federation. Most recently Darrell was selected as a featured artist for The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation.

Currently Cabela’s Sporting Goods Co. has featured Darrell’s art on 17 masters catalog covers the last three years, and has commissioned the 2013 covers as well.

TECHNIQUE:
Darrell Bush paints a variety of subjects ranging from wildlife, to landscapes, seascapes, nostalgia, and even an occasional still-life. One element echoing through all of his art is the luminescent presence of light. Light, whether man-made or natural creates a mood and helps convey the story.
