I'll be exhibiting with this organization in New York in 2011 at the National Arts Club and in 2012, beginning a year long tour to Bejiing, China at the World Art Museum and the outer provinces of China.
The aim of this (non-profit) organization focuses on building a creative and philosophical exchange between artists in the United States of America and those living in China . Exchange programs will be designed to allow American artists to travel to China to meet with their Chinese counterparts to share ideas, methods and techniques associated with realistic painting in oil. In turn, Chinese artists will come to America to do the same. Visiting artists from either side will conduct workshops, seminars and open forum discussion groups to advance the exchange of artistic endeavors in an amicable climate of “East meets West”. Through this organization, exhibitions will be arranged (in America and China ) to showcase the best artists that each nation has to offer with the intent to promote the resurgence of Realistic painting in oil.

I give occasional workshops at this art school. Located in Westlake Village, California, just north of Los Angeles. Originally founded by Fred Fixler ( a student of Frank Riley at the Art Students League) it focuses on traditional drawing and painting skills.
On October 13, 2005, I gave a presentation of my work to the students at CSUMB (California State University at Monterey Bay) as part of their "Visiting Artists Series" at the CSUMB University Center. Kathleen Beirsteker was a student in the class. This is a link to her essay, which I found more intriguing than any other article written on my art to date.
Flesk Publications has published my upcoming book Warren Chang: Narrative Paintings. Flesk publishes speaciality art books, ranging from graphic novels and comic related artists to fine art books of such artists as James Bama, Harvey Dunn, Edwin Austin Abbey and Al Williamson.
Warren Chang portrait painting demonstration on November 3, 2012 at the Pacific Grove Art Center in Pacific Grove, CA. Warren took questions during the session providing the viewers with an intimate experience of his approach to painting.
