Zhu Xianwei

Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart

Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design, Stuttgart


Zhu Xianwei began his studies in China and has spent the past few years living in Germany. In his paintings, the artist combines motifs and approaches characteristic for both countries. On the one hand there is the peace and harmony of Chinese landscape painting, on the other there is the tradition of western painting and the violence which characterizes a significant part of contemporary western society, in particular film.
