Li Wei – The Most Dangerous Artist On Earth?

Chinese artist Li Wei mixes aspects of performance art, acrobatics, photography and good old fashioned misdirection to produce photos with jaw dropping compositions. Depicting surrealist scenes such as the artists head torpedoed into the ground or hanging horizontally out of a building window, Li Wei maintains that the photos are in no way computer generated instead opting for mirrors, scaffolding and cables to create his art. Crazy? Maybe a little bit. Eccentric? Most definitely! Li Wei once invited journalists and fellow artists to watch a performed a piece entitled “It Would Not Die Away Such” He then lay in a bed which was then covered with dirt, the only thing visible being his erect penis.
