"Hunting the River Bank" by Z. S. Liang

Hunting the River Bank
by Z.S. Liang

“A Southern Peigan hunter is patiently waiting for a small group of buffalo coming to the river bank for water,” says artist Z.S. Liang. “He is wearing a wolf pelt with golden eagle tail feathers for his hunting medicine. Since the wolf and the eagle are great hunters, the Indian believes this medicine will bring him success.”

Similar to Liang’s Masterwork™ Canvas , Solitary Hunter, (Sold Out at Publisher) and Woodland Warrior (limited availability), this is a portrait of a man at one with his world, part of the cycle of hunting, eating and utilizing every part of the animal for clothing, shelter, decoration and display of honor and bravery. This ability to survive in a wild environment is part of what has intrigued Z.S. Liang for decades. His rural Chinese upbringing was centered on ancient and traditional lifestyles that made it easy for him to relate to the Native American. No resources were wasted in his childhood home, either.

Liang is a regular participant in the Masters of the American West Exhibition and Sale at the Autry National Center. He set a new auction record at the 2009 Coeur d’Alene Art Auction for The Painted Robe, available from The Greenwich Workshop, Inc. in giclée canvas as both a MuseumEdition™ Canvas and Masterwork™ Canvas.

About Z.S. Liang

Z.S. Liang was born in China and raised in a family of artists. He studied at the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing and Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts in Guangzhou. Liang furthered his art study in the United States in 1982.He earned his BFA in painting at Massachusetts College of Arts in 1986 and his MFA in Painting at Boston University in 1989. 

Liang received his great inspiration in this country while studying and painting the Wampanoag Indian culture at the outdoor Museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts. This newfound interest fired his imagination, and he began to focus his painting primarily on Native American Indian cultures and their traditional ways of life. During the ensuring years of field research, he has made many connections and friends among Native tribes from the East coast to the Rocky Mountains. Liang’s obvious passion for the Indians as a people, coupled with his emphasis on historical accuracy, adds strength and truth to his portrayals. 

Among the many awards Liang has received are: the David P. Usher Patrons’ Choice Award, Master of the American West, 2009; the President’s Award for Excellence, Oil Painters of America, 2005; Best of Show Award and People’s Choice Award, the American Society of Portrait Artists, 1998; the Arthur Ross Award for Painting, Classical America, New York, 1992; and the Lila Acheson Award for Painting, the Society of American Illustrators, 1986. Liang’s works are in the permanent collections of Autry National Center, West Point Museum of United States Military Academy and Harvard University.

Liang has been invited to participate the Masters of the American West Fine Art Exhibition and Sale in Autry National Center every year since 2005. His works have been featured in Art of the West, South West Art, Western Art Collectors, Artists and International Artists Magazines. He is represented by Trailside Galleries in Jackson, Wyoming and Scottsdale, Arizona.
