  • About the tutor

    Wei is a Vietnam-born Chinese Kiwi who started his career as an architect. He became a full-time artist in 2012.

    He has won several local art awards, been a finalist in the prestigious Wallace Art Awards twice (2012 and 2015), and winner of the Wallace Vermont Art Residency in 2016.

    Wei was mentored by a Chinese master painter and his style marries ancient ink techniques with contemporary Western practices.

    During this creative escape, Wei wishes to help participants explore new techniques and understand a new way of painting using Chinese viewpoints.

    Wei is a confident presenter and an excellent communicator. People respond very positively to his infectious personality and encouraging people to discover new ways to express themselves is Wei’s passion.
