W. Jason Situ was born in 1949 in Guang Dong, China. He began painting in high school during China's "Cultural Revolution" and completed his art education at the Guangzhou Fine Arts Institute, one of china's most prestigious and competitive art academies.
In 1989, Situ immigrated to the United States with his family. He was fascinated by the beautiful California landscape and soon decided to become a Plein Aire painter. Now he has been a full time artist and has been active in many of the fine art events in California.
