Sulla sua Arte 

Sculpture with unique style and craftsmanship

 "In freehand brushwork, delicacy can be seen", which best summarizes Liu Wei's artistic style. His works have a grand conception, smooth lines, and extremely dynamic beauty. But upon closer examination, the seemingly graceful lines contain rich details and profound connotations. This is precisely the charm of Liu Wei's sculpture art, and it has also become an important magic weapon for the success of his works.

 Family background, the path of sculpture. Liu Wei was born into an artistic family and has been highly regarded in artistic creation since childhood. In his youth, he focused on studying sculpture and systematically studied relevant knowledge at Xi'an Academy of Fine Arts. He actively joined the ranks of many senior artists and accumulated rich practical experience. I have taught at a university and currently reside in Xi'an, dedicated to the sculpture industry. Under such influence and polishing, Liu Wei accumulated a solid foundation on the road of sculpture creation in the future and finally shone brightly.

 Balancing inheritance and innovation. If the most core concept in Liu Wei's works is to see innovation through inheritance. Many of his works are inspired by traditional Chinese culture, such as "One Qin, One Crane" and "Tianwen", perfectly combining classical Chinese aesthetics with contemporary contexts. He does not mechanically replicate classical elements, but instead gives them new meaning, making them shine with the light of the times. This spirit of inheritance and innovation is like the rushing Yangtze River, with a long history.

At the same time, Liu Wei also pays attention to real life and has created many works that reflect the characteristics of the times. He conforms to the needs of the times and inherits mainstream values, reflecting inheritance in innovation, which can be called "inheritance in innovation". Taking inspiration from Li Shangyin's poem "Tears on the Moonlight Pearl in the Canghai Sea, Warm Jade in the Blue Field", combining the cultural connotation of the Lantian Jade Carving and Creative Industry, this book showcases the charm of the abundant Lantian Jade in this city with soft and moving lines and colors, enhancing the promotion of the city's business card and increasing economic benefits. For example, in "Winter", his daughter's painting is used as the original work, with a curled bird as the main body and ice like jelly as the background. The clumsy and cute design and pure white cool color scheme depict the contradictions and crises faced by the current ecosystem, calling on humans to maintain their survival boundaries and seek coexistence and development.

 In today's rapidly developing digital art, Liu Wei is also actively trying and practicing. He organically integrates digital technology with traditional sculpture, not only improving creative efficiency, but also adding unique charm to public spaces. This spirit of daring to explore is in line with his inheritance of traditional culture. I believe that in his hands, tradition and numbers will collide to create brilliant sparks.

 Craftsmanship creates art. If Liu Wei's life can be summarized in one sentence, it is "unique craftsmanship". He has always devoted himself to the sculpture industry, with a rigorous creative spirit and unique artistic pursuit, constantly breaking through himself, and ultimately forging a colorful artistic life, which also fills us with infinite imagination of the aesthetic value of traditional culture in the digital age.
