Wang Jianwei, born in 1958 in Kaifeng of Henan Province, graduated from the College of Chinese Calligraphy, the Mural Painting Department of the Central Academy of Fine Arts, and the Advanced Research Class of the Research Institute of Traditional Chinese Painting. He is now working and living in Beijing.
Wang Jianwei’s artistic development experience demonstrates a typical path of culture and self-seeking. In 2014, he painted a total of 500 Buddha statue sketches out of an accidental chance. Since then, he threw away manyof his intrinsic artisticconcepts and turned to pursue an internalized creation approach.
