Tian Wei田卫

Tian Wei majored in Chinese traditional painting at the School of Art of Capital Normal University (CNU), after which he studied Chinese traditional painting under the respective tutelage of Professor Jia Youfu at the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) and Professor Du Dakai at the Academy of Arts & Design, Tsinghua University. The artist’s creations are derived from his practice in the early gōngbǐ-technique, as well as his experiences in sketching ancient architectural structures. In the process of gradually ‘leaving behind form and capturing content’ (wàngxiàng), the artist has devised his own unique artistic language, which entails a modern dissociation between the spatial and temporal sense of Chinese ink wash painting. Amid meticulously applied layers of ink wash, the brushstrokes and rice paper reveal a kind of subtraction by means of blank space, resulting in spaces hovering in a state of equilibrium.
