180 Faces

After 18 years, revered Chinese painter Liu Wei brought his new series to New York. This time, Liu painted 180 portraits for Sean Kelly Gallery.

Born in Beijing, China in 1965, Liu Wei studied printmaking at Beijing’s Central Academy of Fine Arts. In this series of paintings, made over the course of one year, Liu Wei demands that the viewer consider the works not as portraits of actual people, but as expressions of his own subconscious impulses.
