Lun Tse and his twin brother were born in Hong Kong, China on
February 19, 1964. The name Lun in Chinese means dragon. There
were ten children in the humble Tse family. The decision was
made to emigrate from China to San Francisco in 1967. For several
years, the family lived in the Chinatown section of San Francisco.
Within a few years after their arrival, Lun’s father abandoned
them. His mother was left to support the ten children alone in an
unfamiliar country. She left San Francisco and took her family to
In the much quieter small town of Salinas, Lun’s twin began writing
a great deal which inspired Lun’s own creative development. Lun
would draw illustrations to accompany stories written by his twin.
In high school, art classes were Lun’s focus. He graduated with an
art scholarship. Lun moved to Tampa where he worked to pay the
bills but was quickly winning awards at festivals and showing work
in galleries in Boca Raton. Within a few years after college, he was
working full time as an artist. He wrote his first book on painting
techniques soon after and his next book is due out May 2005.
His colorful paintings have consistently had a richness and depth
with remarkable use of light. He is an emerging artist whose work
is already collected nationally.
