Born in Hong Kong, China in 1964, Lun Tse grew up in a bustling family. One of tensiblings, including a twin brother, Tse’s parents named their son “Lun” whichtranslates to “dragon” in English, thus destining their son for greatness. Tse’s work-- which melds bold, rich color, thoughtful brushstrokes and delicate imagerybrings to mind this traditional Chinese symbol, a creature both possessingelegance and commanding power.In 1967, Tse’s family relocated to the lively borough of Chinatown in SanFrancisco. They then moved to Salinas, California, a decision that prompted Tse toexplore his artistic talents. In Salinas, his twin began writing, which sparked Tse’sown innate desire to create. He began drawing intricate illustrations toaccompany his brother’s unique stories.

In high school, Tse focused primarily on his art classes and received a scholarshippost-graduation. Immediately thereafter, he relocated to Tampa, where he began experimenting with a varietyof mediums and subjects. With the help of instructional art books, Tse polished his craft and used his expandingknowledge to pursue freelance projects on the side. He considered each venture an opportunity to expand hisprowess as both an artist and a professional in his field. Ever persevering, Tse won numerous festival awardsduring this period, and even had his work featured at a number of posh Boca Raton galleries. Tse was quicklyhired as an Art Director for a Tampa art company. The experience gave him a greater appreciation for thepainstaking process behind fine art construction, and the delicate details that make individual pieces special.

Throughout Tse’s years as an artist, he has discovered the unique technique of sponge painting. This techniqueprovides a different and unique dimension of painting he could not achieve with a traditional brush. He is amaster of sponge painting and has published several instructional books on this subject.Other books he has published include: Painting Murals Fast & Easy, Painter’s Quick Reference - Trees & Foliage,Painter's Quick Reference - Landscapes, and Sponge Painting all by North Light Publications.

Tse’s work has been displayed at many nationally and internationally acclaimed trade fairs and fine galleries. Hispieces, often large-scale landscapes or floral motifs, possess a dreamlike quality that is mesmerizing, butprecise. Tse’s breathtaking style is marked by hazily blended vibrant colors and wispy brushstrokes. Each piecehe creates has its own special story that often recalls Tse’s diverse upbringing, spanning two very differentcontinents and cultures.“

I find great satisfaction in creating artworks that are done well,” Lun says. “To have them well received by anyaudience brings a total sense of accomplishment. When a collector takes my artwork for their own to enrichtheir homes -- this gives me a sense of contribution.”

Tse currently lives and works creating fine art in Atlanta, GA.
