50 Impossible and Amazing Action Art of Li Wei

Filed under Inspiration

Li Wei is a contemporary artist from Beijing, China. His work often depicts him in apparently dangerous and gravity-defying situations. Wei started off his performance series, Mirroring, and later on took off attention with his “Falls” series which shows the artist with his head and chest embedded into the sidewalks, cars, water, etc. His work is a mixture of performance art and photography that creates illusions of a sometimes dangerous reality. Li Wei states that these images are not computer montages and works with the help of props such as mirror, metal wires, scaffolding and acrobatics.
