Luis Ngchong Jr
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
I was born in 1968 and raised in New York City, by Dominican parents. I was the oldest out of the three children of the family. The first time I discovered that I could draw, I was at the very young age of six. That's when I knew that art was my favorite hoddy, and later a career. I went to the performing arts, and art high school in New York Cirty. My major was fine art. I also was a student in a art school in Cincinnati, OH. I am a self taught artist. I tried to get into the other fields in art for example magazines (caricatures), book publishing (comic books, and children books) greeting cards, and fine art. I tried and had no luck, but my family and friends told me that I should try to be entrepreneur, and work for myself. That's why I am selling the painting myself and I have been successful. The medias I use are pencil, pen and ink, watercolor, colormarkers/ink, mixed media, and oil. The subjects I paint arre portriats, animals, figurtive, nudes, sports, landscapes flowers and many more. I also do commission paintings and drawings. My style is realism and there is a little bit fantasy in my art because to make the images of real life more interesting. A lot of people tell me that some of my art is kind of comic booky which is true because i am influreance in comic book art.
