Shi Wei

Chinese, b. 1965

BACK

Long a muse of inspiration, artistically and otherwise, the female body holds a matchless sway, capable of arousing the male imagination and altering his perception of reality and illusion. In art, the female body also reveals what lies in the artist's heart as well as the influences on his development. Anyone who lays eyes on Shi's captivating oil paintings of gorgeous slender women, stylishly transmuted by an unseen zoom lens, will detect an awareness of women borne of deep admiration. The viewer is left with a strong sense that the artist identifies closely with women, doubtless a result of the ardent attention he has lavished upon her.

Shi Wei's artworks have been exhibited in major art fairs like Singapore Art Fair, Hong Kong International Contemporary Art Fair,

The Asian Art Asso-, ciation in Korea. Had an auction record of RMB230,000 set at Poly International Auction house in Beijing, June 2013. Shi Wei's beautiful skinny women series are populated amongst international collectors.
