"Storytelling" acrylics by William Leung closes

The Newport Beach City Arts Commission presents "Storytelling", an exhibition of acrylic paintings by artist William Leung, on display at the Newport Beach Central Library gallery. 

Self-taught, William Leung's drawing and painting techniques were developed through personal exploration. At the age of 17, he picked up an airbrush and has loved using it ever since. It is his art tool of choice. The airbrush allows him to paint broad patterns or fine detail whenever he wants. He is able to mix colors right on the canvas without hesitation. Its versatility is the reason he uses it.

Leung’s use of rich colors and subtle details bring about a unique dynamic in each painting composition. The careful and purposeful use of color and value expertly applied with his airbrush adds to the story of his paintings.

While his passion is painting, Leung’s objective is storytelling. Every one of his completed paintings tell a story. "I believe every blank canvas awaits a story to unfold. There are moments in life that cannot be described with words. The visual path is the best language as it allows each individual to experience and interpret it their own way."

The exhibition will be on display January 11 through March 5, 2021, during the library's modified operating hours.
