This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Creating illuminated, dramatic California landscapes, W Jason Situ is fascinated by the special light of his subject matter.  He lives in El Monte, California, and says he has been much influenced by the French Impressionists.

He was born in Guangdon, in southern China, and was raised on a farm.  During the Cultural Revolution, when schools closed, he began painting and studied art informally with friends, including Mian Situ.  He also painted en plein air with local artists.  After the turbulent political period calmed, he studied at the Guangzhous Fine Arts Institute in China and then became an art teacher at his former high school.  He came to the United States in 1989, and settled in Los Angeles where he copied European paintings for a gallery, drew tourist portraits in Chinatown and painted T-shirts.

He is a member of the California Art Club, the Oil Painters of America, and the Laguna Plein Air Painters Association.  In April, 2001, Situ won the Oil Painters of America National Award of Excellence at the 10th Annual National Juried Exhibition.

He began painting while in high school, and when the school closed due to the Cultural Revolution, Situ studied informally with friends and painted plein air with local artists. When this extremely turbulent movement ended, Jason spent two years studying at the Guangzhou Fine Arts Institute, one of China’s most prestigious and competitive professional art academies. In the early 1980s, he taught art at the Kaiping #1 Middle School and was active in many of China’s fine art associations.
