Zhao Dewei is an important figure amongst the Qingdao's art scene during the Chinese 85' New Wave Moment. As the Chairman of the Qingdao Youth Artists Association, he relentlessly worked and strove to promote young talent via a self-organised 'Never Stopped By Wind Or Rain' open-air art activity involving contemporary art, behaviour, discussion and affairs. Outdoor exhibitions under his role as a Chairman of the association was held consecutively for every Saturdays for over three years, providing the platform for artists to showcase their artworks.
Meanwhile, he continued his focus in research on Chinese writing and calligraphy which led to the opportunity to develop his unique style of painitng; which has seen him achieving major success when taking part in major exhibitions globally.
His recent works portrays the realities of urban living through our rapid changing environment. Zhao is also a master of control as he carefully drips mixed paints onto his canvasses, creating images that is unique to him. When the paint is applied rapidly, limiting his colour palette helps to strengthen the visual impact of his work.
