As a fine artist, Sean Hsiao is known for his landscape paintings and prefers to paint plein-air as often as possible.
“When I plein-air I capture the emotion that I am experiencing by using brush strokes to recreate a sense of freedom and movement. I use color to recreate the mood of the scenery in front of my eyes. By using the ultra wide format I hope to give my audience a cinematic experience when viewing my work.”
