Show Juror: JJ Jiang of Cary NC.
JJ’s childhood was spent in China during the Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). During that era of
madness, drawing, writing and reading poetry kept him safe and sane, and shielded him from the chaotic world outside.
Drawing and painting have become inseparable parts of JJ’s life. They came to him naturally (and early) and have help
shaped his view of the world and himself to a large degree.
As a fine artist, JJ draws his inspiration from both his eastern and western cultural roots, as well as his inquisitive mind and
inner poetry. He excels in drawing, watercolor and oil painting, while exploring subjects such as: still life,
landscape/cityscape, portrait and figure, Chinese calligraphy and brush painting. His work has been widely exhibited,
collected and has won many awards..
JJ currently lives in Cary, North Carolina and is the founder and director of the Village Art Circle fine art gallery in the heart
of downtown Cary. His unique art journey was written and published in the OUR STATE/North Carolina magazine, January
2015 issue.
