Wei Nan


Wei Nan (born 1994) is a young Chinese artist from Beijing, trained in the art of lacquer in Japan for 8 years. Drawing inspiration from the dynamic beauty of nature, such as blooming flowers and restless undulating waves, she explores three-dimensional forms that emerge, layer upon layer, with urushi lacquer. It combines the soft, flexible nature of leather with the elegance of lacquer and creates a dynamic that invites the viewer to interact with the work of art on a visual, tactile and emotional level . One of his works recently joined the collections of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
