Contemporary artist Li Wei, born in Hubei in 1970, currently resides in Bejing, China. Wei started his artistic journey in art school until he decided to focus on his current medium of expression; by defying gravity in his suspended animation photography illusions. Sure you’ve seen photography where people are floating in mid air, but what you see here is not photoshopped.
Li uses a mixture of carefully positioned cameras, props and wires and stunt work to achieve these astounding visual effects.
Li Wei had his first solo exhibit in 2004 at Marella Gallery, Italy and his works have been in many publications such as Flash Art, Wallpaper, Fine Arts Literature, Vogue and Zoom (Italy).
