Hans Amis, born in Canton, China, in 1957, is a graduate of the Fine Art College in Canton and a member of the China Association of Fine Art, China.

Upon his arrival in the United States in 1985 he has assumed the French name "Hans Amis".

Schooled in the Oriental tradition of art, his paintings reveal an in-depth understanding of and facility with the Occidental approach to painting.

His portraiture, romanticizing the female figure, recalls in different studies both the 18th century English court painter as well as the 19th century French outdoor painter.

The viewer may be particularly drawn to the artist's fascination with the beauty in the female form as well as in landscape. The handling of flowers, lush and painterly, is especially accomplished.
