Max Boyang Biography
National award winner Max Boyang is a 13-year-old artist from Michigan. He and his twin brother Louis Boyang are known as the Boyang Twins in the art community. Max has always loved drawing since he was little. However, from a family of three generations of scientists and engineers, his interest in art was never taken seriously. In March, 2015, Max and his brother were discovered by artist Vivian Dwyer at the age of 9. As Mrs. Dwyer said, she got chills when she saw the boys’ drawing, and she had never seen any 9-year-old that drew like them. Unlike most kids at his age, Max doesn’t like copying others work. He loves creating his own original artwork. Max loves nature. Insects are his most favorite subject. The main media he uses is crow quill pen and ink. Watercolor and metal leaves are also used. Max’s abstract style insect artwork is largely based on his imagination. He observes the shapes of real life insects, pencils them on the paper. He then uses his imagination for the design of the insects and the background. Max’s artwork has been exhibited in fine art galleries across the country. His work has also been displayed on billboards. In March, 2017, Max won Juror Award in national juried exhibition “Flight” hosted by Tubac Center of Arts in Tubac, AZ. In July, 2018 he won third place in “2018 Flowers and Gardens National Juried Show” at 311 Gallery in Raleigh, NC. In March, 2018, Max won “Honorable Mention Award” in national “Shock of The New West” exhibition . He was always the only artist under age of 18. Max and his twin brother Louis have had five solo exhibitions since they started doing art three years ago. They also have taught adults and children’s art classes in Seattle, WA and Lansing, MI. The boys have donated thousands of dollars from the sales of their artwork to charities. The twins’ story was featured in The Lansing State Journal, Seattle King 5, WLNS-TV, WILX-10, Greater Lansing Business Monthly, HOMTV, Swedish Expressen.
