Zhou Siwei was born in Chongqing in 1981 and is currently living and working in Shanghai. Zhou graduated from Sichuan Fine Arts Institute, where he majored in oil painting, in 2005. By employing recurring patterns in his paintings and re-engineering structures in his mixed-media installations, he has created a visual logic that challenges the usual ways of seeing.
Zhou’s major solo exhibitions include Beautify Home, co-presented by Galerie Urs Meile and Antenna Space at Antenna Space, Shanghai (2017); Schematic at Galerie Urs Meile, Lucerne (2015); and A Round Studio at Aike-Dellarco, Shanghai (2014).
