Life

Hu Weiyi was born in Shanghai. Hu's father is the new media artist Hu Jieming, whose video installations combine physical diagrams, history, and architecture to create interactive digital experiences. Hu Weiyi's work follows a similar range of influences, drawing its inspiration from social ethnography, art history, and experimental film.

Hu graduated with a BA from the Department of Public Art at the China Academy of Art in 2013. He completed an MFA at the Academy's School of Intermedia Art in 2014, where he studied under Zhang Peili, a multimedia artist associated with the 1985 New Wave Movement and a pivotal figure in video art and Chinese contemporary art.
