Steve Wang

Master artist Steve Wang creates memorable characters as a designer, effects artist and film director of creature effects-driven feature films.

BIOGRAPHY

Award winning special effects character creation artist and respected monster maker, Steve Wang, was born in Taiwan and moved to the United States at the age of 9. His greatest inspirations were the Tokusatsu superhero TV shows ULTRAMAN and KAMEN RIDER, as well as Hong Kong kung fu films including MASTER OF THE FLYING GUILLOTINE.  

As a veteran special makeup effects artist and creature designer, Steve has worked with fellow veterans before him including Stan Winston, Rick Baker and Dick Smith.

Steve has received great praise for his two film adaptations of the manga superhero, Guyver (THE GUYVER and GUYVER: DARK HERO). Another project which drew attention to him was the direct to video movie, DRIVE, which starred Mark Dacascos & Kadeem Hardison. He also made independent films such as KUNG FU RASCALS, based on a series of 8mm short films he did years before.

Steve and his brother Michael Wang, an award-winning commercials director, have recently been hired to work on KAMEN RIDER: DRAGON KNIGHT (an adaptation of KAMEN RIDER RYUKI), a second attempt at reviving the KAMEN RIDER series in the United States, after Saban's MASKED RIDER of 1995. They write, produce, and direct as the "The Wang Brothers."
