Let see his Interview !
Hello Liwei. Thank you for answer this question.
Could you please introduce yourself , and explain to these French people what is your photo Style?
I’m a contemporary artist, I mainly use photography or sometimes sculptures to express. My photo is merged a lot with performance art element, because before turning into photography, I was a performance artist. You can find a lot of humor, impossible scenes in my images. I want to use the image to show my living situation, to show the dangerous and unstable side of this society.
What do you want to represent with
I want to show how the impossible change to the possible.
Could you select the Top Ten Pictures that you prefer !
Well. I like “Li wei falls to Hong Kong”, “29 levels of freedom”, “the baby leaves away from the earth”,“Ahead 1″. “live at the high place” ,”Balloons”.”Buddha in Paris”
,

 China!

.
How did you realize your photography?
I use photoshop actually, but is on the stage of postproduction. I need to use photoshop to remove the wires. I make the real shot because the experience of performance art is the most important element of my works.
Right now, what are you preparing? (expo, work, advertising for a brand… )
I’m preparing some exhibitions in 2013.
You went to France? How was it ?
Yes, this March. My collaboration with Parc de la Villette is quite successful. I made the Buddha series.
Chinese has a bad image for creativity, according to you : the new generation of Chinese artists can
change something?
Why not?
What service you offer, what do you search ?

I work with art institutions, museums mostly. Sometimes I also work with big companies for advertising
