In the Gallery

Liang Guo is a Chinese-American realist painter who immigrated from China to the U.S. in 1995. Upon settling in the Boston area, Guo developed a love for the city which became the inspiration and strength behind his current series: Portraits of Boston. Through this series, Guo wants to give his audience the opportunity to see Boston from the point of view of an artist who lives and works in the city, but is from a different culture.     


Guo has been the recipient of many prestigious awards including the 2022 Mass Cultural Council Fellowship. Guo’s work has been shown and collected throughout the world.
