About the Artist:

My name is Phil Fung and I am a Miami-born visual artist. All my life I have lived with one foot in reality and the other in my imagination. My art is my way of sharing the connection between both realms. 

The things I make are a part of me, but also part of the world. My goal is to shine the light a bit brighter on the wonderful in our life.  I can be a master of creation within my work.  My brush strokes can be bolder, my design eye can be sharper, I can find freedom reflecting the world around me. As grandiose as that all sounds, I really just love to make beauty.  I love to make happiness, make people smile, and make something to be proud of. 

Most artists have an artist statement.  I only have an ideal.  Whatever I do, no matter the job or the subject it will be with all my heart. All my craftsmanship, my experience, and my life poured into my work. Trust me, it's way better than any artist statement you can find.
