Wang Yani was born in southern China. It is a beautiful country with
mountains, rivers, and all kinds of animals. Yani grew up in a loving family.
Her father was an art teacher and a painter. He would take her to work with
him, and she started drawing on the wall of his studio when she was two and a
half years old, so he gave her some sheets of paper on which to draw. At first
it was just scribbling, but by the time she was three years old, her drawings
and paintings were realistic. They looked just like the object or animal she
was trying to draw. When she was four years old, her father gave her a pet
monkey. After that, monkeys became her favorite subject to paint. She would
make up stories about her paintings. Sometimes she would listen to music while
she painted. When she was eight years old, her father, Wang Shiqiang, gave up
his career as an artist because he was afraid his style of painting might
influence his daughter. He wanted her to develop her own style. He took her on
tours of many countries to broaden her experience. He was very strict with
her. He said that he had to be strict because of her amazing talent and fame.
Her paintings are known throughout the world. She has shown her paintings in
China, Japan, Germany, Great Britain, and the United States. The country of
China even put one of her monkey paintings on a postage stamp!
