My name is Xiaonan, and I am the artist behind one of the highest-rated YouTube art channels (youtube.com/ThePortraitArt) with 30 million views, 250 thousand subscribers and counting. (Scroll down for my channel trailer.)

My passion is to bring a few moments of serenity and joy to you in this crazy, turbulent world through my art videos.

My works have been: 

  • Commissioned for theater released film documentary Salinger,
  • Featured on the front page of Youtube and MSN.com,
  • Purchased and featured in Ripley's-believe-it-or-Not museum. 
  • Featured on the Rachael Ray Show and various other TV programs around the world.

See video below for a quick trailer of my channel! Full videos can be enjoyed at http://www.youtube.com/ThePortraitArt , or check out a selected sample on my Video Gallery page on this site.
