Contemporary photo-realist painter Hilo Chen (Yee-Lum) was born in 1942 in Taiwan and later became an American citizen. He is noted for his paintings of nudes and flowers. Chen’s craftsmenship as painter is nothing less than superb. The skin tones of his nudes seem more “real” than life itself. You feel as though you can almost touch these women who are so oblivious to being observed.
Chen’s work is held in public collections at: The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY; San Jose Museum of Art, San Jose CA; Taipei Fine Arts Museum, Taipei, Taiwan; Taiwan Museum of Arts, Taichung, Taiwan; and the Newport Art Museum, Newport, RI
