Wang Wei

b. 1972, China

Wang Wei was born in Beijing, China in 1972. In 1996, he graduated from Central Academy of Fine Arts. He lives and works in Beijing.

Wang Wei is a multidisciplinary installation artist who looks at how the navigation of physical spaces can inform us about our own lived reality. Through modifying existing architectural structures with subtle, surprising, additions or appropriating stylised features from disparate sources, Wang Wei has developed a strong practice around interventions that aim to disrupt our perceptions of space, while opening a dialogue about construction, labor and ways of seeing.
