About Yong Hong Zhong

Lake Oswego, OR

Yong Hong Zhong was born in Canton, China and immigrated to the United States when he was twelve years old. Yong developed a keen interest in drawing at an early age. His determination to pursue his dream of being an artist prompted him to attend La Guardia High School, a prestigious school for music and arts in New York City. Yong continued his education at Pratt Institute in New York to further develop his artistic skills. He majored in Illustration and has a minor in Art History.
Yong started working for the Disney Animation Studios upon graduation. During his fourteen years employment at Disney, Yong had worked on over a dozen theatrical feature films. After completion of Disney’s “The Princess and the Frog”, Yong was ready to take a different direction and focus on his passion for traditional painting. The knowledge and experiences he acquired from the animation industry continue to be an invaluable influence in his art.
Yong has been a fulltime fine art painter since 2009. He participates in plein air painting competitions and teaches painting workshops around the country. Yong has won many awards, published in art magazines and his works are in the permanent collection of the Maryhill Museum.
