Peng Wei Biography

Seemingly shifting away from ink tradition, Peng Wei focuses her exploration in contemporary aesthetics on ink, and further transcends tradition. Her work revolves around the past of art, including the wisdom, memories, sorrows, and sense of reality found in ancient work. Rooted in traditional literati painting, her work incorporates everyday epiphanies and female reflection into elegant and delicate ink paintings, portraying the soft yet persevering spirit of Chinese literati. Peng Wei's latest body of work 'Calligraphy Series' recreates memorable poems of famous poets such as Mu Xin, Great Master Hong Yi, and Gustave Flaubert, casting the ink art tradition in a contemporary light. Rooted in heritage, the artist's contemporary brushwork steeped in quaint charm encapsulates today's feminine aesthetics.
