About the Artist
Yiwei Xu (b.1990, China) is a London-based Chinese illustrator and artist. She is greatly interested in drawing from observation, memories, and poems. She is seeking the boundaries between the real world and the inner world, or maybe there are no such boundaries, and the entire experience of life is a dream. The mysterious and subtle atmosphere in the world fascinates her. Light and shadow reveal the gate of the hidden tunnel that connects realities and fantasies. She uses mixed media to create harmony and conflict that could express a bizarre yet realistic world through artworks. Yiwei lives and works in London, UK.
