‘My Wei’ is a Giclée print by contemporary artist Mason Storm. From a limited edition of 100, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Elusive artist Mason Storm creates meticulously detailed prints from a fusion of conventional painting techniques and mediums, cultural iconography, and themes of modernity. His work turns around the traditional portrait, adding in elements form contemporary culture: from music, to TV, to advertising, Storm’s updates are brilliant satirical commentaries on twenty-first century society.
‘My Wei’ is Storm’s tribute to the great contemporary artist Ai Wei Wei, much revered by Storm himself. Recalling twentieth century Chinese portraiture (think hazy paintings of Chairman Mao), ‘My Wei’ gestures towards Ai Wei Wei’s outspoken views on contemporary Chinese politics: a brilliant salute from one artist to another.
