SinArts Gallery has the absolute pleasure to present the beautiful photography of Shen Wei.
Born and raised in Shanghai, Shen Wei is a visual artist based in New York City and Shanghai. He is known for his intimate portraits of others and himself, as well as his poetic landscape and still-life photography. His work has been exhibited internationally, with venues including the Museum of the City of New York, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Power Station of Art in Shanghai, La Triennale di Milano, the North Carolina Museum of Art, the He Xiangning Art Museum in Shenzhen, China, and the Moscow Museum of Modern Art. His work have been featured in The New Yorker, The Guardian, CNN, Aperture, ARTnews, American Photo, Chinese Photography, Paris Review, and Financial Times.
Shen’s work takes us on a journey across 5 continents in search of inner peace, which he finds in the everyday still-lifes he encounters. Often inspired by classic Chinese imagery, the negative spaces in his images, between the blossoms, along the naked bodies, keep our minds wandering.
We will present a selection of works from both his "Almost Naked" and "Between Blossoms" series. For further inquieries about availability of works, please don't hesitate to contact the gallery.
