CHEN LI WEI 陳俐維
Chen Li Wei is a “self-taught, with self-created artistic expression techniques, unique and talented” female artist from Taiwan, Keelung. She grew up in the mountains where she absorbed much of her artistic talent as a visionary artist. She delicates but extensive three-dimensional palette knife technique is well-known between her art lovers and collectors from all over the world.
Chen Li Wei liked to paint since she was a child without any professional course. She started as a painter until she was 40 years old. Growing up in a small village surrounding by mountains is the reason she loves nature very much. She said, “My childhood was running on the grassland. There are many flowers and trees around me, just like Alice in Wonderland, that’s why my paintings are all about nature.”
Chen Li Wei had only two painting knives, such as a wall, stacking the layers of paint on the canvas, and painting the love of nature. “I think art is a healing treatment for me. I have turned my fearful heart into beautiful scenery. I use my own creation and imagination to talk to my heart.”
