Born in 1971, Wei Ping is a printmaker teaching in one of the Shanghai art colleges as well as having her own studio at Mo Gan Shan. Children, her family members, her youthful self, and some female nudes haven inspired her work. Her life advise is “take to time for meditation, stop thinking”
“Stop thinking: just to release ourselves. Our minds restrict the freedom of our personality. A free person is a happy person, healthy person, an unbound person, a civil person, a humble person, a simple person, a person detached form substances, a person with a free mind, a person with manners, a person who is able to act according to his or her own design, a person who acts by principles, a person who respects others, a person who is able to make the right choice according to the changes, a man or woman who does nothing against nature.
A free person should be the one who is able to listen to the true voice of his or her heart and know their true needs, able to break away from the limitation of outmoded and useless roles and do valuable things, able to control habitual thinking and behavioural modes to direct his or her passion, and be able to firmly execute their decisions with strong self-discipline.”
