C. Kung is the Vilas Professor of Genetics and Molecular Biology, Emeritus, of UW-Madison and a member of the National Academy of Sciences.  He is also an associate member of Oil Painters of America.  With some 40 years of learning and practice, his paintings have been in private collections and exhibited at several venues in one-person or group shows.   He is interested in Western techniques in combination with Chinese-art sensibility. He is also interested in the visual physiology and psychology behind representational art.  Subject matters are eclectic, from classical still life to social commentaries. 

His work has won several awards including the 2012 Ada Biddick Award and 2014 Joseph E. Burk Award of the Wisconsin Regional Art Program’s State Exhibit.  It was selected and exhibited for the 2013 Museum of Wisconsin Art Member show.  A painting was also an entry of the Northern National Art Competition at the Nicolet Art Gallery in 2013.  He has also exhibited his work with the poems by Donna Carnes and Blair Mathews at the Pyle Center at UW-Madison in 2015 and 2016, and at the UW Hospital in 2017.
