Mr. Wei LI is a Senior and he was born in Jiang Yin, Wu Xi, China. He moved to Shanghai in his teenage. He loved arts and music when he was very young. Apart from his talent in painting and Chinese calligraphy, he is also very good at playing violin and flute. He loves music in his heart. He is inspired by a lot of his childhood memory when he was living in the countryside. Thus, we can often find the childhood pleasures and humor as well as his love of nature in his paintings.
The topics of Mr. Li’s paintings are wide in their themes. He is a great master in the painting of flowers, beautiful ladies, plants and fruits, and excels especially in animals, insects, birds and landscape. The expressions in each of his painting cover many aspects. Mr. Li’s works are so vivid and lively that those birds, fish, tigers and eagles seem to have their own souls on the paper.
He had gradually developed his own painting style after several decades of work with his devotion. He combines the free sketch with the traditional Chinese painting style and using bright colors or the western oil painting style. At the same time, he puts his own understanding of philosophy of life into his arts. When one stands in front of his works, one can look into his inside world being full of peace and joy. No wonder all who come into contact with his paintings find themselves most pleasing and turning to love nature more under his influence.
Mr. Li had his painting exhibition in Vancouver in September 2017, and attracted much attention from the public and received lots of appreciation from art lovers and painting dealers.
