Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks. Simonides

Wei Shaodong

Wei Shaodong takes inspiration from classical master painters, both Western and Chinese, from eminent Chinese historical figures and from the Chinese landscape painting tradition. He depicts icons of modern times, such as aircraft, firearms and electronica, against a background of the lush tropical foliage of his native land. This surreal amalgam of technology and the natural world is then incorporated into a classical setting, thus creating striking and thought provoking images.

Wei Shaodong was born in 1971 in Guangxi province, studied art at university in Beijing, and is now an artist and a lecturer in art.
