Oliver Sin is an alumnus from Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA, with a BFA in Illustration. Right after he graduated in 1996, he started his art career as a computer game concept artist in LucasArts. Since 2001 until now, Oliver has returned to his own school to be an art professor for the School of Fine Arts and 2D Animation. Oliver has been so drawn to art even as a little boy, he once recalled that he has started drawing at the age of 3. Somehow, portraiture just seem to be his favorite form of expression which he constantly practice, not only as an art professor, but as a favorite hobby as well. Since 2011, Oliver has been lucky enough to come across a few distinguished contemporary artists as his mentors, ZhaoMing Wu, Henry Yan and Chung-Wei Chien. Their tireless guidance has urged him to put greater efforts in capturing fleeting human expressions and paying more attention to precise composition in figurative portraits. Oliver’s first educational art book, “Drawing the Head for Artists” is published by Rockport publisher on August 6th 2019 and his portrait has won Exceptional Merit Award of the Portrait Society of America’s portrait competition out of 2968 international entries in April 26 2019.
