Qiang Huang (pronunciato Chong Wong) è nato e cresciuto a Pechino in Cina ed ora vive ad Austin, in Texas. Il suo interesse per l'arte è stato sviluppato nei suoi primi anni e fortemente influenzato da suo zio, Hong-En Huang, un pittore professionista ed educatore d'arte. Per varie ragioni, non ha avuto l'opportunità di studiare arte in nessuna istituzione artistica professionale.
Ha invece studiato scienze e tecnologia.
Si è trasferito in America nel 1985, dove ottenne un dottorato di ricerca in fisica nel 1993, e iniziò una carriera nell'ingegneria ottica.
Tuttavia, è stato attivo nelle comunità artistiche locali.
Per sviluppare ulteriormente le sue capacità artistiche ha frequentato corsi e workshop. Ha studiato da noti artisti come David Leffel, Sherrie McGraw, Scott Burdick, Jean Chambers e Miles Mathis. I suoi dipinti mostrano una notevole accuratezza e pennellate espressive.
Qiang è membro degli Oil Painters of America dal 2004.
I suoi dipinti sono stati selezionati per il 14°, 15° e 16° OPA National Juried Exhibitions.
