1964 Born in Datong, Shanxi (CN)

He majored in mathematics at Nankai University and was assigned to teach at Taiyuan Normal University after graduation. During this time, Wei developed his interest in Chinese calligraphy. He became the President of the Calligraphy Society at Nankai University, which allowed him to learn from the best calligraphers in the region, including the reknowned Li Henian.

In 1988, Wei dedicated himself to his medium and in the late '90s, moved to Beijing to concentrate on and further develop his art. Still pushing boundaries, he uses Chinese calligraphy as a resource to create China's own form of abstract painting.
