Biography from Thornwood Gallery:
Willy Wang graduated from the sculpture department of the Beijing Central Academy of Fine Art in 1962 and later immigrated to the United States in 1981.  His style of sculpting largely reflects naturalism and realism.  Wang's talent resides in his ability to capture an innate quality and an essence of his human subjects.  He recreates life with striking accuracy, lucidity, intensity, depth and dimension.

A listings of his works include a marble sculpture of Madame Sun-yat-sen at her former residence in Beijing (a replica of this is kept in China's Fine Arts Museum); a sculpture of Dr. Sun-yat-sen at Georgetown University in Washington D.C.; a bronze cast of George Brown in front of the George R Brown Convention Center in Houston; a bronze sculpture of a nurse and several portraits at the Medical Center in Houston; a bronze bust of movie star Cary Grant in Beverly Hills, Hollywood; a full-size bronze statue of A. Kaprie Liam at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles; and a bronze statue of William P. Hobby at the Texas State Capital.

Several of his contemporary pieces such as Embrace and Dance of the East reside in private collections.  These works though more abstractly construed, still exhibit the same exquisite technique, rich and harmonious expression of Wang's talent.

Wang utilizes a wide range of art forms to convey his inner feelings and genuine passions.  His sketches, oil paintings, murals, posters and caricatures all demonstrate his compelling talent to capture human life, to master a craftsmanship, and to brilliantly execute his vision through art.

Some of these works include the Great Evans Mural in Los Angeles, an oil painting of Bishop Clinton S. Quin, founding father of Saint Luke's Hospital in the grand lobby of the Hospital in Houston, and a published collection of his much popular caricatures of movie stars.

Aside from being an actively commissioned artist, Wang also devotedly volunteers to teach art at the Willy Wang Workshop.  His students come from various backgrounds and professions and often show significant progress after attending his workshops over a few years.

Wang is a member of the Chinese Artist's society and the National Sculpture Society, America.  Several of his pieces appear in China's Fine Arts Museum and in public exhibitions across America, Europe, Asia and Africa.

Wang has received awards for his artwork from the Chinese Artist's Society and the American Emmy Awards. His work has been featured in newspapers and on several television and radio station in exclusive interviews. He has been granted titles such as "Honorary Citizen" and "Honorary Mayor".
