Liu Wei's Cities

Here's a big news: I will be interviewing the artist Liu Wei and visiting his studio near 798 tomorrow! 

I'm really excited to have the opportunity to talk to him, and I have been furiously researching about him for the past hour to come up with questions. 

I came across pictures of many of his installation works as well as oil paintings and I really love the ones about metropolis and city buildings.

Liu Wei works with a variety from forms, styles and medium, from oil paintings and sculptures to installations made of window flames and edible dog chews. In the interview tomorrow, I'm excited to ask him about how he comes to decide what medium to use and how he turns his initial ideas into forms!
