The impossible art of Li Wei

 



You may think these images are photoshopped, but they’re not, or so the artist claims. Chinese artist Li Wei doesn’t need the computer to create his surreal photographs, instead he employs the help of props such as mirrors, wires, scaffolding and acrobatics. His ‘Li Wei falls to …’ series is a mix of photography and performance art which shows the artist with his head and chest embedded into surfaces. I also find a few of his  gravity defying shots particularly interesting. Try as I may, I might never arrive at how they were created.
