Lives and Works: Hong Kong
Li Wei (李威) is a Beijing-based female artist born 1979 in Harbin, China, who attended the Zhejiang Art Academy
Middle School, the Nanjing Art Institute, and the Central Academy of Fine Arts. 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. Notable
exhibitions include solo On the Horizon (Art+ Shanghai Gallery, Shanghai) and group shows The Ode to Youth:
China-Korea Young Artists Exhibition (Hongik Museum of Art, Seoul, Korea) and Silent Poetry: Chinese Contemporary Art Exhibition (China Cultural Centre, Sydney, Australia).
Li Wei’s works can be found in a number of collections including the Deutsche Bank Collection, DSL Collection, Guan Shanyue Art Museum (Shenzhen), and the University of Hong Kong Museum of Art (Hong Kong).
