Unbelivable Pictures

Unbelivable Pictures

The 37-year-old's work has been successful all over the world (hanging)


Li Wei sees his art as a mission to set the scene for the perfect photograph and a perfect performance (hand sky)


He specialises in creating the illusion of dangerous reality


The artist employs a mix of acrobatics


Wei admits sometimes he is in real danger


The 'jumper' says he aims to go as high as possible with his work


Here he appears buried in the ground. The artist says people do get a little worried about him

More on this fantastic artist:

In his home town Beijing the performance artist Li Wei sometimes hovers as a green emblem on a red flag, sometimes stands upside down with his head hidden below paving slabs, and is sometimes face to face with his wife and baby at a dizzying height on a steel scaffold. His mirror-performances are meant to be publicly entertaining but also to mirror the public literally. “What I experience during my performances,” says Li Wei, “inspires me for my following projects.” He thinks of his artistic work as a continual balancing act between his striving for freedom and his concern for preserving the little emotional security still available, – for instance within the family.

I love the expression on his face as he's leaping out of the window. It's the visual equivalent of "LOL", except less fatuous.

Great pics. His work reminds a bit the Finnish/American Arno Rafael Minkkinen.

You can see his pictures here:

There's no such word as "Unbelivable" - it isn't a word.

Nicholas said...

Is anyone seriously doubting if Photoshop (or another photo manipulation program) was used? I don't think that is the point.
It reminds me a lot of Jeff Wall (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Wall)

Oh and yes we all know Unbelivable is not a word. It's call a typographical error.

jack said...

i hate nicholas. stop pointing out the obvious. it does not make you sound smart.

Hossein said...

Incredible I say.
No doubt about it.

I have the oddest feeling that these are in no way 'shopped. I'm a pro 'shopper but this is not do-able in photoshop. Amazing wire and mirror work. Brilliant.
