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。

自2008年,陳俐維在世界各大城市舉辦了近百場巡迴展覽,在世界當代藝術家中取得了優異的成績。 2016年,陳俐維應邀到盧浮宮舉辦畫展,並在巴黎盧浮宮獲得法國國家美術協會文學評獎大獎,登上藝術最高殿堂。 2017年獲得法國國際美術沙龍評委會單元獎。 2019年獲得東京藝術雙年研究展學術獎。 她獨特的“砌畫”風格讓世人認識了這位自學成才的畫家。
