WEN Yipei, born in 1988 in Qinhuangdao, Hebei Province. After graduated from the Oil Painting Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, he did a Master's degree in Painting at Pratt Institute of the United States. He now lives and works in Beijing. WEN Yipei's creation has always focused on the subject of 'Space'. He's trying to strip every subordination, functionality and relevance by putting together landscapes in different fields. In this solo exhibition Settings, the artist presents a unique view with a blended indoor (mind) space and an external space (architectural space and natural space). Since 2011, WEN Yipei has participated in exhibitions and projects of many major art institutions not only in China but also abroad including Bangkok, and New York.
