John Ching was born in Kaneohe, Hawaii and his childhood was spent among the bright colors of the tropical nature of the paradise island of Oahu. Probably, this is what influenced the fact that the heroes of his paintings were precisely representatives of flora and fauna – bright and exotic.

Now John Ching lives and works in Los Angeles, California and writes incredibly beautiful paintings in which the beauty and power of nature is intricately intertwined with his fantasies and philosophical reflections. But in order to fully enjoy the works of Ching, you do not need to delve into the ideas of his canvases. They are good in themselves, even without a secret meaning.

The artist boldly creates new creatures, often combining incompatible forms of life, thereby showing the inexhaustible potential of our planet. At the same time, the heroes of his paintings are often fragile and defenselessly touching. Ching seems to show the viewer that the creations of nature are amazing and thorough, but at the same time they are vulnerable in the face of man.
