Chinese, b. 1972
Follow

A multitalented member of the emerging generation of Chinese artists, Liu Wei has said he “[doesn’t] begin from a material or a technique […] I have an idea and then think about how to express it.” Working in a wide variety of media, Liu has progressed from witty cultural critiques, including “landscapes” composed of photographed buttocks and a sculpted six-foot turd studded with toy soldiers and electronic components, to evocative installation pieces that comment on urbanization and materialism in a rapidly changing China.
