Wei Zhou was born in Chongqing, China in 1962, and began to study art at an early age. In 1979, he was admitted into into the Southwest Normal University in China and graduated from the Oil Painting Department of the Fine Arts Department in 1983. After working as an art instructor at a private art school, he headed to the Dafen art village near Shenzhen, to continue his work as an artist. He was trained from his education in a variety of artistic styles and techniques, and spent 10 years specializing in reproductions and creating ‘original replicas’ of paintings for clients, before returning to his own artistic career.
Today, he is the master of his own artwork and an active member of the artist community. Wei Zhou has now completed thousands of canvases and is a member of the Chinese Artists Association, Director of the Chongqing Artists Association, Vice Chairman of the Artists Association of Yubei District, Chongqing, and Professor of the Academy of Fine Arts of Chongqing Southern Translation College. Wei Zhou is also the Director of the V-Dimension Art Museum and has an entire museum of his own, the V-Museum in Chongqing, which is filled entirely with his artwork.
