Collecteurs x Guo Hongwei
Beijing-based artist, Guo Hongwei, has created 10 unique artworks in a series titled Art is for Everyone in a collaboration between Collecteurs and ChART Contemporary. Hongwei wrote this title in the painting and painted the landscape based on the structure of the embedded letters. He then combined the written text with the landscape to create a harmonious composition. After dividing the work into smaller sections, the words become scattered and meaningless, however the intention of the message lives on. Each section of the painting is part of one larger landscape. Similarly, the audience for a work of art can also be broken down into various roles. You could be an artist, collector, curator, journalist, or a casual viewer. These roles guide us to look at art from different perspectives, but only when you combine these elements do you get a complete picture of how “Art is for Everyone.”
Hongwei has achieved wide renown for his mastery of the watercolor technique.
Hongwei’s works are in the DSL Collection in France and White Rabbit Collection in Sydney, Australia, among many others.
