The New Talent: Faye Wei Wei

Telegraph Luxury, September 20, 2018

 

Painter Faye Wei Wei, 24, has had a prodigious couple of years since graduating from the Slade School of Fine Art. Her first solo exhibition took place at Camden's Cob Gallery just a few months later, in April 2017. ('I had actually applied to be an intern there as I loved the gallery. I attached some images of paintings, and Cassie, the gallerist, said, "Oh my God. Come in for a meeting, I want to give you a show," just like that.') In September of the same year, she created four large paintings as a set for Hannah Weiland's Shrimps show at London Fashion Week, which brought her to the attention of the international fashion crowd.
