Artist Jiawei Zhao

Jiawei Zhao



b. 1989   —   My photo-based art practice stems from that personal experience, which I have moved or transferred among many different types of places and spaces since my childhood. In other words, I moved from a small town to Beijing, and then I moved to Wisconsin, Texas, and finally New York in the order. Those sudden changes of places prompt me to create a perfect space of both comforts and feelings of security in photographic space. Inspired by the French concept “flaneur”, I “flaneur” both in The New York Times virtually and on the space of NYC, and then I figure out my own philosophy. Confusing temporal and spatial relationships, all of my artwork is two-dimensional photographs, which are taken of photographic installations. Jiawei Zhao is a Chinese-born visual artist living and working in Brooklyn, NY. In 2018, Jiawei received his MFA Fine Arts degree from Pratt Institute. His work is in the collection of the Kala Art Institute, where he finished a residency in 2019. His work has been selected continuously for the 56th and then 57th Annual Juried exhibition at the Masur Museum of Art. Jiawei has recently participated in residencies at MASS MoCA and ChaNorth. He and his work are selected to participate in The Other Art Fair Brooklyn, which will be held in May 2020.
