The World of Zhou Zhiwei

Notes along the way – London, 2023

In Shanghai East TV series about artists, Zhou Zhiwei is portrayed as “the traveller”. He is not only a painter but also an avid traveller. His paintings encompass a wide range of subjects including different figures, different landscapes and atmospheres. Travelling serves  as  his primary source of inspiration and within the nature he encounters during his  journeys we discover a rich tapestry: serene  temples,   the profound beauty  of a mountains, the snow_capped peaks,  the African baobabs and Mongolian children riding horses. While Zhou Zhiwei’s subjects vary greatly, a common thread can be discerned in the sensitivity with which he interprets nature.
