Thomas Leung was born May 30, 1958, in Kowloon, Hong Kong. Inheriting his artistic talent from his father, H. Leung, he grew up watching his father create beauty on canvas, and knew that he, too, would become an artist.
That he had artistic abilities became apparent when he was still very young and winning awards for drawing in school. His father encouraged his interest and later became his tutor. As a teenager, Thomas Leung exhibited his first paintings at the same gallery in Hong Kong where his father's works were shown. His family then immigrated to the United States, and he went to college to major in art.
While still in college, he started to develop his own individual style, finding exciting new ways to express his novel ideas. He experimented with colors, created new concepts, and found new paths of artistic development. After graduation, he started to show his paintings in exhibitions in museums and art shows, and awards and honors began coming his way.
Today, Thomas Leung creates canvases of great diversity: dreamy landscapes and magical fantasies, striking abstracts in bold colors, and pastels of multi-hued iridescence. They all show a masterful harmonization of color and a vibrant vitality. His paintings today can be seen at many prestigious galleries throughout the United States.
