Jeff Jia, a renowned Chinese painter living in America, was born in Qingdao, Shandong. He primarily focuses on the Asian Claborate style of painting, depicting traditional landscapes and animal themes, especially tigers and lions.
Jia's family produced three generations of creative painters. Being an admirer of his family, Jeff started to learn western painting skills at an early age with his father, Mr. Jia Qingqing, and his elder brother, Mr. Jia Bo, who are both top tier Chinese oil painters. As his interest grew, he learned Chinese painting with Mr. Sun Guofeng, Mr. Zhang Fushan and Mr. Liu Donglun for years.
After graduating from the Fine Arts Department of Qingdao Technical College, Jeff engaged in advanced studies at China Central Academy of Fine Arts and Beijing Film Academy. Since 1975, Jeff has attended many art contests, exhibitions, and ceremonies in many countries and districts, where he received plenty of recognitions and rewards.
