Chi­nese con­tem­po­rary artist PENG WEI’s po­etry of brush art man­i­fests it­self in her lat­est col­lab­o­ra­tion with Hong Kong fash­ion re­tailer Joyce

#Legend - - ART -

PENG WEI GREW up wit­ness­ing art in the mak­ing. Her fa­ther, cel­e­brated Chengdu artist Peng Xiancheng, is one of the most cel­e­brated artis­tic fig­ures in con­tem­po­rary China for his de­pic­tions of Tang Dy­nasty char­ac­ters in tra­di­tional guo­hua style. Af­ter re­ceiv­ing her mas­ter’s de­gree in the year 2000, she en­tered the art world and never left. Her work has been ex­hib­ited all over the world and is recog­nis­able by the del­i­cate, har­monic and tra­di­tional tech­nique of brush art, which she uses to tell com­plex po­etic sto­ries of hu­man and nat­u­ral in­ter­ac­tions. When Peng came to Hong Kong to present her lat­est col­lab­o­ra­tion with Joyce, we caught up with her to talk art and in­spi­ra­tion.
