CHEN LI WEI

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 in 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 starts as a painter until she was 40 years old. Growing up in the small village in mountains, 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, so my paintings are all nature.”

When Chen Li Wei was young, she often looked at the father of the construction craftsman. She 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 a beautiful scenery. I use creation to talk to my heart.”

陳俐維是一位“自學成才,具有自創藝術表現手法,風格獨特而才華橫溢”的台灣素人女藝術家。無師自通的陳俐維,調製濃稠油彩,不用畫筆只用筆刀,運用了水泥師傅砌牆的技法,將油彩層層堆累在畫布上;繪出比一般油畫更厚重、如雕塑般的立體視覺效果。


陳俐維從小在山區長大、與大自然為伍,山川、大地、雲霧、海洋都是畫中題材。她透過筆刀刻畫出日夜晨昏之美,每一座山對她來說有如母親溫暖的懷抱。

陳俐維至小就時常看著建築工匠的父親砌牆,耳濡目染下她的作畫工具也只有兩隻畫刀,像是砌牆那樣將顏料層層堆疊在畫布上,將熱愛的大自然畫的栩栩如生。通過她的畫作與周圍的對話。她富有想像力的作品包含著非常豐富的生命能量和愛。「我覺得畫畫對我來說是一種療癒,將我曾經害怕的心都轉變成美好的景色,我用創作來跟內心對話。」她不僅為賦予了大自然以新的意義和情感,而且讓自己開啟了一個非凡,靚麗和美妙的風景線。
