LI WEI

Li Wei (李威) is a Beijing-based female artist born 1979 in Harbin, China. She has obtained her BA in Oil Painting of the Nanjing Art Institute, and MA from the Mural Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. Her paintings are marked by a combination of imagery from traditional Chinese ink paintings and a contemporary, experimental quality that pursues originality in artistic language through layering, materiality, and vision. By deconstructing natural imagery into dot matrices, Li Wei constructs new perspectives and reflections on landscape and tradition.
