GUO WEI

 

b. 1960 Sichuan, China

 

Born in 1960, Guo Wei graduated from Sichuan Academy of Fine Arts in 1989, and currently lives and works in Sichuan Province, China. He graduated from the woodcut department in 1989, and participated in many of the formative early group oil painting exhibitions at mainland institutions in the early '90s. Guo Wei is known for his consistent focus upon the individual, and many of his subjects are the youth that surround him. Although trained in woodcut, he is known for his use of the oil painting medium, often playing with the sculptural qualities of the form, such as in a recent show, “Fabrication,” in which the artist makes effectively makes cut-outs from acrylic canvases. Guo Wei's bold use of color reflects the vitality of his subjects, and spray-paint like effects give his works an urban feel. His works are often a document of the new individualism that monumental changes in Chinese society have given rise to.

 

Guo Wei has had several gallery and museum exhibitions, including Centre Pompidou and Hakgojae Gallery, Seoul.
