About the artist

Jon Ching is a self-trained artist originally from Kaneohe, Hawai’i who is currently living and working in Los Angeles, California. Being raised in the natural beauty of O’ahu, Hawai’i, his world view encompasses indigenous lessons of appreciation and respect for nature which forms the foundation of his fascination with the natural and wild world and deeply influences his work.

Jon’s devoted art practice and detailed realism is inspired by the interconnectedness of nature. Whilst he tries to honour the perfection of nature’s design, his work is also a surreal imagining of what limitless wonders and combinations nature can produce. New creatures and symbioses emerge in his oil paintings, exemplifying the endless potential of life on Earth through metaphor and allegory.

Jon’s ultimate hope is to inspire love and admiration for the universally unique beauty and intrigue of our planet. Often, this is in efforts to bring awareness to endangered species, the current mass extinction crisis and climate change.

Artwork Themes & Subject Matter

Jon Ching’s work focuses on the natural and wild world. Nature’s kingdoms and the majesty that it beholds is his main focus.  With such a love of nature, Jon also feels he needs to make work about the importance of biodiversity, interconnectedness and the current mass extinction crisis.  As a new father, his work is also opening up to more personal themes of play, curiosity and protection.
