Li Wei was born in 1970 in Hubei and was educated in Beijing, China, where he also lives now. He organized solo and collective exhibitions and they were all a great success because of the new dimension he gave to modern art.
His imagination knows no limits and his works of art are truly amazing, some even disturbing, but none of the less spectacular and different. Only by looking at Li Wei’s photos you get sucked in a world of fantasy and unlimited possibilities.
As a tribute to his work we present his 39 most famous and incredible photos of his creations. At the end of this post, you can find some work scenes and videos on how he creates some of these works.
The contemporary artist Li Wei defies gravity by his work and by the new reality he creates. Far from being easy, Li Wei doesn’t stand aside from jumping into the sea, flinging himself outdoors through the windows or on the ceiling, all for the sake and love of art. People are often shocked by his actions and by the results he achieves in his photos.
By using mirrors, camera lenses, steel wires and old school acrobatics, he creates unique icons of contemporary conceptions. The symbolism in his art is very strong and it is meant to familiarize the new world more with the physical limits with the psychological adjustment of the contemporary life, especially in the regions of China, connecting the present with the present and future.
Here are a couple of scenes from Li Wei’s workflow and two videos that will amaze you.
