My Life

Sep. 5th, 1970, I grew up in the countryside in Jingzhou, Hubei province, along the Yangtze River.

1975, I went to the primary school. During the busy seasons, the school will let us transplant rice seedlings. We sometimes just cook the crops we get and eat them. The nature nurtures my childhood. For having fun, I also stand on the shoulder of my friend who is taller than me.

1980, I went to middle school. I remembered there was a big flood when the school started. The houses in the village were all drowned, so we lived on the trees beside the houses! Children play with the doors in the flood every day, the nature leaves me many unforgettable memories.

1982, I transferred to another military school in Yichang. That is a very big military institution, which investigates bombs, submarines, torpedos, and all of the naval weapons. At that time, I tried the real military helicopter, submarine and weapons. Half of the teachers are the staff from the institution, and that was the first time I felt knowledge and imagination are powerful.

1989, I started to learn oil painting in Yueyang.

1990, I studied painting in Changsha. I felt very happy and satisfied to paint in the mountain area and though orange trees.

1993, I went to Beijing to study painting in a college.

1996, I started to do performance art.

1998, I worked with a film crew for one month in Wuxi. I started to know that each scene can be created. I even began to wonder if the city Wuxi itself is fake after leaving the city.

1999, I started to do image creation. I worked for a photo studio, and knew my photographer Jiangzi at that time. Then I quit at the second half of the year and began to create freely on my own. Life experiences have a great influence on my art creation.

李(日韦)

1970年9月5日出生于湖北荆州的农村,在长江边长大,


1975年上小学。农忙季节学校常常组织我们插秧。有时随便采些庄稼在野地里用火烤或煮煮吃。我常常站在身材高大的同学的肩上玩。
1980年上初中。开学的那一天,家乡遭遇洪水,房子全部被水淹没,于是我们就住在房子边的树上。每天,小朋友们带着门板在洪水中嬉戏。
1982年,我转去宜昌市的军方科研所的子弟学较上学。那是很大的军事科研所,研究炮弹、鱼雷、潜艇、核弹,以及所有海军武器。我们体验过真正的军用直升机、潜艇,也见过各式武器炮弹等。我们的老师大多是科研人员。
1989年,岳阳开始学习绘画。
1990年长沙岳麓山学习绘画。在桔子林中体验绘画的快乐。
1993年北京东方文化艺术学院油画专业。
1996年从油画转而尝试行为艺术创作。
1998年在无锡影视城从事一个多月的电影置景工作。认为真实和想像的一切都是可以制作的,离开无锡的时候,感觉整个城市都是虚构的。
1999年开始行为艺术创作。上半年在影楼工作,对影像有了新的认知,也认识了我的摄影师朋友姜子。在影楼工作了半年后辞职。

生活经历对我的艺术创作有着非常重要的影响。
