Li Wei


Li Wei, born 1979 in Harbin, in the Hei Longjiang Province in China, lives and works between Hong Kong and Beijing.

In 1999 she finished her studies at the China National Academy of Fine Art in Hangzhou. In 2003 she graduated from the painting program at the Arts Institute Nanjing, and in 2007 she obtained her Masters in Mural Painting from the Central Academy of Fine Arts in Beijing. On the occasion of her degree show, she received the Academy’s First Prize for painting.

Li Wei’s two first solo exhibitions took place in 2009, at the Today Art Museum in Beijing, and at the Central Art Museum in Nantong. Both shows, entitled Simplicity and Complexity, presented works on paper and silk from different years. Since, the artist’s work has been exhibited regularly in Beijing, Hong Kong and Shanghai as well as in numerous group exhibitions in China, Australia and USA.

In 2011, Li Wei was invited by Michel Baudson to participate in the exhibition, De l’arbre à la forêt (From Trees to Forest) at the Alice Mogabgab Gallery, Beirut. Thereafter, the Gallery has shown her work on an almost yearly basis, in Beirut and at Art Paris Art Fair, in 2012, 2013 and 2014. In 2016, the artist’s first solo show Whisperings, was held in Beirut and accompanied with a catalog.
