Biography

Xi Fei was born in 1956 in China. He left China in 1989 for the United States, and arrived at the end of the Reagan years to a city and country that on the verge of the global information age, was more heterogeneous than ever, fixed on capital, consumerism and commodification, to see pop culture close up and compare it with the Pop art that had earlier fascinated him. Even the celebrated art school he had enrolled in couldn't hold his desire of creation, he left the school and started his career as a professional painter.

In Xi Fei’s most representative released series are:

1. Reverse Plato-ism - Pop Art One Hundred whys 

2. Manhattan - Fillers atop the Crown

3. Image Liberation : When the outline of the conceptual art began to tremble - a professionl artist's 15 conceptual beliefs

These series are filled with epic-like allegories and auras of innovation that have since become Xi Fei’s signature style. Xi Fei's practice is a canny blend of the artist's Chinese heritage and his American milieu, indebted to both Eastern and Western system of thought.

Xifei believes that “artistic wholeness” is of uttermost importance in art above individual element of technique, color, style and etc. This belief in the ‘supremacy of artistic wholeness’ will surely leave a path of reflection for those to follow in the 21st Century contemporary art.
