Peng Wei Playful Paper Sculptures Merge Traditional Chinese-style Paintings With Contemporary Objects

Peng Wei is a world-renowned Chinese artist whose works have been widely exhibited in Brussels, Berlin, New York, Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, and Taipei, and are part of numerous private collections. Many are familiar with her exquisite and graceful designs on Xuan paper and silk. Using traditional painting techniques to explore the language of contemporary art, she consistently pushes the boundaries of her compositions towards new explorations. Her past endeavors include illustrations of embroidered shoes and traditional robes, painting installations, painted paper-cast sculptures, a handwritten letter series, and more. In her works, one can see the subtle variations that form the basis of traditional ink painting, as well as delight in a sense of playfulness. Her ability to balance symbols of tradition with a contemporary freshness is admirable.
