Weiyang Gao



Chinese, b. 1993   —   Weiyang Gao is a Chinese artist who currently works in Chicago, US. Wei received his BFA in 2013 from Boston University and his MFA in painting and drawing in 2021 from School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Wei’s paintings blur the categories of figuration and abstraction. Within them, he utilizes themes of pattern, space, and light in relation to the human body to discuss and critique the constructions of systems of belief. Being an artist with a multi-cultural background, He has insight into the many ways people have used and abused culture and history to create barriers and divisions within the broader spectrum of humanity. Within his paintings, he addresses the feelings of being oppressed by those barriers and divisions while looking for places that could transcend both culture and history. Wei has shown at the Sloan House in Boston, Guayaba Gallery in Union City, Visionary Project in New York, Research House of Asian Art and FLXST Contemporary Art Gallery in Chicago, etc.
