Subject:PLEASE Help Identify Artist Chen, Ping-Chi
Posted By: David Tuttle Mon, Dec 06, 2010 IP: 76.177.125.19

Hi Folks, I have had this painting for 20 years. It was given to me by a 97 year old Okinawan man who was a friend of mine during my military stay there. He took it off of his wall. I dont know the age and can not find any information on the Artist or the paintings value.

I actually purchased about 5 of his paintings during my husband's tour in Okinawa (1990-1991). He was an older deaf gentleman that knocked on my door one day. Over my 6 month stay, he would visit and I would purchase one of his paintings. I have also been curious about him over the years but have not been able to locate any information on him.

My mother-in-law was a military spouse and lived in Okinawa in the early 90's and purchased a painting from this same man. It's a beautiful canvas painting that we now have.

I would also like to know more about this artist. I have several of his paintings, and the work is just very nice.

Hi, I was stationed in Okinawa 1990 - 92 and I also bought 2 paintings off of this gentleman, who was deaf and selling them door to door. I have a painting of an eagle soaring through a valley and another of a lighthouse in the distance seen looking through a cave. I often wondered if these paintings were from some kind of mass market painting from a factory. I could only confirm it if there were several copies of the same picture. I would appreciate if anyone had some more info, especially on value. Thanks

Lived in Iwakuni from 1989-1991.
He came to our door selling his paintings, he was deaf and had no english. We invited him in for dinner. Bought three paintings from him.
1: two old mast boats on the ocean, very good work.
2: a snow covered clearing in the woods with two turkeys.
3: a view of mount fuji during the day from a muddy dirt road surrounded by woods and flowers with light peaking through.
