This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born to Chinese parents in Bangkok, Thailand, Sunny Apinchapong-Yang is a painter in a style that combines Expressionism and Impressionism.  In reverence for his family origins, the artist who began his career with the name Sunny Apinchapong added Yang as his last name.

He settled in America in 1970, and took his first formal art education in Los Angeles at the Art Center College and California State University.  He earned a Bachelor's Degree and Master of Fine Arts.

His mentor was Sergei Bongart with whom he studied in 1977 on a scholarship at the Sergei Bongart School of Art in Los Angeles.  He became his studio assistant at the school and in Idaho at workshops.  Later Yang taught workshops and classes in schools including the Brandes Art Institute in Reseda, California.

In 1984, he had a one-man show at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle and had a master exhibition that same year at Cal State University.

From 1987 through 1989, he worked in Dublin, Ireland on three feature films for Sullivan Bluth Studios and also had exhibitions of his work in that city including an exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts.

Apinchapong-Yang is a signature member of the California Art Club, and serves on its Board of Directors.  He has also been an artist for Walt Disney and for Dreamworks Animation.
