Chinese-contemporary modern


Born in Fujian province in 1969, Wei Yi has started the journey to art in his life since 17 years old. In 1988, he went to the Central Academy of Art to further his study, where he got a giant leap in painting skills. He went through the social transformation from ideal to reality. Therefore, He believes artists should hold a sense of social responsibility to face real problems. He also believes that sometimes artists need to take off the mask of beauty and bring up a higher pursuit for bravery and wisdom.
