Warren Chang (b. June 9, 1957) is a California based Fine Artist, best known for his paintings depicting the fieldworkers of Monterey County.  His realist paintings are reminiscent of 19th century painters, in particular Francois Millet (1814-1875) who also depicted scenes of peasant farmers in rural France.   Chang's paintings depict subtle narratives that celebrate the human spirit. 
In addition, Chang also paints interior scenes depicting his home, studio and classroom environments.  Many of these paintings include self portraits, where he is depicted teaching or painting in his studio.  These paintings are neoclassical in style and are influenced by many of the great 17th century Masters, such as Rembrandt, Velasquez and Vermeer.

His work have been purchased for the permanent collections of the Monterey Museum and the Hilbert Museum of Art in Orange, California.  He was honored with solo exhibitions at the Monterey Museum of Art, the Butler Institute of American Art in Ohio, New Museum Los Gatos and most recently at the Triton Museum of Art in Santa Clara, California in 2021.  He is the subject of a 112 monograph book on his paintings published by Flesk Publications in 2012.   Warren is a Signature member of the California Art Club and a Master Signature member of the Oil Painters of America.
