Liu Wei (born 1972 in Beijing) is undoubtedly one of the most brilliant talents of his generation. The artist, who graduated from the Oil Painting Department of China Academy of Fine Arts (Hangzhou) in 1996, now lives in Beijing. Using video, installation, drawing, sculpture and pain- ting, his work is shape-shifting and unclassifiable. However, a few recurring themes, treated with humor, mark his path: the contradictions of our times, the changing urban landscape, a reflection on the world's chaos.
