About the Artwork:

“Self Sustained is a part of a continuing series where I encapsulate precious pieces of nature. The current and ongoing mass extinction crisis of our natural world has greatly affected the direction of my work and with so many species of plants and animals threatened with extinction, I wish to keep them safe in a bubble, away from harm.

So far, most of this series has focused on endangered species. Self Sustained is the first piece that has deviated from that theme. I’ve used non-threatened species as an example of what a future can be for their threatened cousins if we ease our pressures on their habitats and lives. It features an oriole simultaneously holding up an orchid while perched upon it. In this biosphere, the bird and orchid live together with mutual symbiosis.” – Jon Ching

About the Artist:

(Aritst Bio)

Jon Ching was born and raised on the island of O’ahu, Hawai’i. He attended the University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA where he earned his BS in Mechanical Engineering. After a few brief experiences in the engineering industry, he quickly realized it wasn’t his path and changed gears to pursue his creative passion for painting. Since then, Jon has been developing his painting process and techniques, refining his visual language. Inspired by the natural world and through detail-focused realism, Jon is as much studying the minute idiosyncrasies of flora and fauna as he is paying homage to it. Jon lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
