Library Art Gallery: Scott Yao

Painting by Scott YaoThe Woodridge Library Art Gallery will feature the work of fine art painter Scott Yao throughout July. Scott Yao began to express the beauty of his hometown, Beitou, Taiwan (known for "a hot springs near the sea" and the surrounding Yangming mountains), through art from an early age.

Although Scott does not have formal training, he appreciates art in its various forms, most notably portraiture. Through experimentation, exploration and effort, Scott has honed his own painting style, influenced and refined by his background in engineering and architecture. He believes that his “life and soul are dedicated to art.”
