Li Wei

Original Signed Artworks & Limited Edition Prints For Sale

A contemporary Chinese artist, Li Wei is recognized for his combination of performance art and photography, the result of which often depicts a somewhat dangerous reality – his Fall series is one example of his works of this kind. Many of Wei’s work features him in what appears to be a gravity-defying position, but he states that these shots make use of wires, mirrors, scaffolding and acrobatics.
 
« The process of making a painting, for me, is driven by intuition and imagination. »
Li Wei
Initially, Li Wei had planned to become a painter, but eventually conceded that he preferred to express himself in a more literal way, stating: “Only performance art offers a chance to experience an action’s message through one’s own body.”
 
« In my work, I'm searching for a visual language which combines representation and abstract elements to address my own hybrid identity »
Li Wei

Although his work is impressive for the trickery and the stunts, it does also analyse and challenge the human perception of reality – through his use of mirrors, Wei is able to express his own personal thoughts, experiences and take on his own reality. (Artist website) Read More
