He Wei

He Wei

born in 1987 in Anhui (China)

"Each form of art is a projection of sensations, a bag of vital energy." HW

I think that every expression of art is a representation of feelings and a container of vital energy. Colours, shapes and symbols, which seem to be randomly chosen, are linked to the unconscious and to my memories: the transport of this meaning is the reinterpretation of thoughts and experiences.

If the artwork is the 'personification' of thoughts and feelings, then what we see is only a way to interpret them, and the different gestures presented in his works represent the most direct, simple and impulsive communication. This kind of communication has an effect outside concept of values like what is right or wrong.

Born in 1987 in Anhui Province, China, he studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, then in Milan. In 2014 He Wei received the Laguna Prize at the Venice Arsenal.

Among his exhibitions, "Lost in a Nurse's Dream" (2017), "A Matter of Life and Death" (2015), "The Second Anhui Oil Art Exhibition" (2008) followed by "Zeitgeist" (2012) and "The Second Anhui Oil Art Exhibition"(2008).

He currently lives and works between Italy and China.
