Born in 1986 in Inner-Mongolia, China, Wei Xiaoguang gained a BFA from the Central Academy of Fine Art (CAFA) in Beijing in 2010 and an MFA from Hunter College in New York in 2014. Overcoming the distinction between representation and abstraction, Wei Xiaoguang’s work is deeply embedded in the post “Death of Painting” period. By carefully modulating effects of light, textures and surfaces, his paintings effectively combine multiple visual languages and artistic traditions.
He has exhibited and performed at Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) Art Museum in Beijing and lectured at Guangzhou Academy of Fine Arts and the Institute of Management of Art and Design of the Central Academy of Fine Arts (CAFA) in Shanghai. He has exhibited with Chambers Fine Art in New York and Galleries Urs Miele in Beijing and participated in the fairs in New York, Shanghai and Singapore. He lives and works in Beijing and Shanghai.
