Zhixing Zhang, Ivy Lin, George Wen and Thomas Linn comprise our team of resident painters at the Photographer’s Oil Collective. Averaging 20 years of experience each, they were chosen from more than 5,000 professional artists in Xiamen, China, a world leader in the oil painting industry.

Educated in the Eastern tradition as reproduction oil specialists, they have received further training through POC to translate the palette and detail of Western photographers. With this combined expertise, our painters represent the best of both worlds.

Their high standard is the foundation on which our collective is built. So we ensure that they fully share in the success they are helping to create.
