Art Brokerage: Adrian Wong Shue was born on the Caribbean island of Jamaica in the West Indies when the island was still a British Colony. His formal studies were in Kingston, Jamaica and Los Angeles, California. He exhibits widely in many major galleries throughout the United States, as well as in Jamaica, Korea, India, France, and Germany. A current exhibition of his work (February through April, 2006) is touring galleries in two German cities. His more figuratively inclined oil paintings and drawings reflect his early, formal training during the 1960's at Kingston College under Professor Alexander Cooper and his tutorship under Chinese drawing master Alfred Chin in Kingston, Jamaica. Given the varied influences in Wong Shue's background - formal training in a British inspired academic atmosphere, tutorship in the traditional Asian discipline of art, and early exposure to local Caribbean island art - it is not surprising that the artist's current work shows more than traces of his formative years. Adrian Wong Shue currently works from his studio in Los Angeles, California.
