Wei Zhang


Wei was born in China and currently lives in Glasgow.

Wei has obtained the bachelor’s degree in Film Directing (with First Class) at Chongqing University in China.

Wei has obtained the first master’s degree in Filmmaking and Media Arts (with Merit) at the University of Glasgow and the second master’s degree in Fine Art at the Glasgow School of Art (with Distinction).


For the past decade, Wei has been honing his skills in experimental animation and film. He has been utilising varieties of digital-based post-production technologies for his art projects.


Wei is not a loyal follower of post-modernism. Wei was trained by traditional film and art industry in China, which constructed his aesthetics with strong modernity. This legacy leads Wei’s works continuously chasing for the immediate or formal properties of works of art to bring a flattering pleasure. Meanwhile, Wei inherits plenty of significant ideas from postmodernists and socialists during the higher education in the UK. He tries to deconstruct metanarrative on sex, gender, sexuality and ethnicity, which socially, politically, culturally and historically constructed Otherness and marginality of Sino-queer. Wei stresses the importance of equality and heterogeneity through his works.
