Jie-Wei Zhou Artist To View Jie-Wei Zhou Works

Jie-Wei Zhou Artist


Jie-Wei Zhou studied fine art at The Shanghai Teaching University and graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in 1984. He furthered his studies at the Shanghai Drama Institute and in 1991, received the coveted Master of Fine Arts Degree, bestowed on only 11 graduates for the year, from a city with a population of 13,000,000.

He soon became a recognized artist in China but had a dream of painting and teaching in America. He sent rolled canvases to an American gallery where he earned the payment for his passage and became a permanent resident of the United States, migrating to the US in 1995. Zhou varies his subject matter but keeps it authentic. He sometimes poses his wife and daughter in traditional Chinese clothing in daily life scenes.

Zie Wei's paintings take on much the look and feel of "The Old Masters", but his style is his own, mastering light and dark for a most dramatic result.

Zhou is proficient in the mediums of oil and watercolor. He is the recipient of numerous awards for his art and has participated in many exhibitions in China, Taiwan, Japan, Hong Kong, and the United States. His expert paintings can be viewed in many private collections and in fine art galleries in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Wyoming. His subject matter ranges from paintings of Native Americans, Tibetans, Chinese and Landscapes from North and South American, China, Tibet, Taiwan and Japan.

Jie Wie has been referred to as "An Artist To Watch". He has achieved much to date and has a great future in fine art painting.
