Chris Huang

I am an artist, designer, educator and marketer.

I believe in all religions that teach people love and peace. I believe in karma and reincarnation, and I personally practice the combination of Taoism, Buddhism, and Hinduism.

I abandoned my paint brushes and studied computer arts abroad in New York. For the past 25 years, I’ve been dazzled by the numbers game. How can I gain more clicks and views from e-marketing campaigns? How can I attract audience to pull out money from their wallets to buy a product or trust a brand? I went from an artist to a businesswoman. When I turned 50, I looked back and questioned the meaning of my life. I realized it was empty. I did nothing. I was lost until I found peace for my soul in the philosophy of Buddhism and Taoism.

Religious art could be considered missionary metaphysics. As an artist perusing religious practice, I seek answers to the meaning of life through the drawing process. In my very first painting, I ignorantly treated it like any other design work, sitting in my dining room with snacks around and some loud rock music to keep me “productive”. Of course the results was shameful. After many failings, I leaned that each section is a practice lesson. I must keep my mind and soul unoccupied from any influences. One painting takes months of quiet sittings in the worship room, spiritual communications, learnings, passions, and monk-like living and veggie diet. There are challenges, questions, frustrations, mistakes…but it all reaches the same end: one of joy!

I am in the mission of sharing joy!
