Ginette Wang

Ginette is an International multi-award winning artist, illustrator and published author based in Melbourne, Australia.
 

She is well-versed in many media. Her mixed culture background had a profound influence in her art creation. Combining her Western and Chinese painting as well as her Chinese Calligraphy skills, she creates artworks with strong emotions just like an opera, they can be peaceful as well as bold and exuberant.  


She enjoys painting a wide range of subjects, from impressionistic watercolour landscapes, urban scenes, boats, animals, portraits to bold abstract mixed media large size paintings. Music, life, philosophy and travelling are the main sources of her inspiration. Her artworks evolve organically from impressionistic to abstract and then to surrealism. Every piece of her artwork is unique as she doesn’t like to repeat the same subject over and over.

She has won many awards Internationally and her artworks have been exhibited and held in private collections locally and internationally. 

She has been accepted to several international artist residency programs:
•    Ginestrelle Artist residency, Assisi, Italy 2022
