Trailside Galleries is pleased to present “Cultural Portraits” a showcase of new paintings by Colorado based artist Jie Wei Zhou. The show will consist of approximately 8 -10 new works featuring Chinese portrait and figurative works.
Jie Wei Zhou is a master realist who works in oil, watercolor and acrylic. Born in Shanghai P.R. China, Zhou studied Russian and French painting styles, earning a Bachelor of Arts Degree from Shanghai Normal University and a Masters in Fine Art from the Shanghai Drama Institute.
Based in Colorado, Zhou is recognized for his stunning figural works that primarily depict the tribal peoples of Tibet, Mongolia and China. He has always loved painting the rich costumes and cultures of these people. Zhou often captures the everyday life of children and adults, dating as far back as the 18th century to present day.
