The Great Encyclopedia of International Art - ART UNIVERSAL

The Great Encyclopedia of International Art - ART UNIVERSAL - was born to catalog painters, sculptors, photographers, graphic designers, performers from all over the world. Within this publication, the director of the Art International Contemporary Magazine, Salvatore Russo will deal with the Encyclopedic Dossiers of in-depth study on modern and contemporary art. The aim is to "historicize" the work of selected contemporary artists, in order to insert them in that circuit of art that made famous the greatest Masters of the 20th century.

Salvator Russo is an outstanding critic. I thank him with full of admiration for his criticism, which all in line with my creation idea. He gave me a great criticism:

Pu Wei’s painting is a type scratchy, dark painting that has within itself the hidden enigmas of the artist’s soul. Linguistic power. Creative energy, Dynamism of a sign that is never static. These are the essential characteristics of her painting, which finds in the cosmos its analysis of profound research.

A painting that explores the enigmas of the mind and visually traces its dictates. A great sign synthesis, enriched by a chromaticism always very sought after, characterizes the work of Pu Wei, An artist whose visions lay the foundations for a new contemporary art.

Through an essential sign, she succeeds in the difficult task of communicating the unknown, An unknown that Pu Wei brings to the knowledge of the bystander through its shapes and colors. The artist develops her own sign and chromatic geometry, New visual architectures make their appearance and thus fascinate the gaze of the bystander, who cannot help but observe with admiration the painting of this excellent interpreter of contemporary art.

I want to compare the artist’s creations to powerful volcanic eruptions, Eruptions that are characterized by the magmatic power with which the color invades, in my view a completely legitimate way, the canvas; which thus becomes a real battlefield, A battle that the knights of light fight against armies dressed in shadow. A battle that has the final outcome, the triumph of an art that has as its objective, that of narrating beauty, through real rainbows of light.

In observing these works, We immediately realize the greet harmony with which they are made. Pu Wei succeeds in the difficult task of shaping the light, A light that takes on infinite sign and color shades.

——Dr. Salvatore Russo

Being there is HISTORY. The famous art critics Luca Beatrice, Angelo Crespi, Philippe Daverio, Francesco Saverio Russo, Salvatore Russo, Sandro Serradifalco, Edoardo Sylos Labini, and Vittorio Sgarbi will enrich the volume with texts of art history.

Segnalati by Salvatore Russo,Italy famous international art critic

The exhibition in Portugal, at Lisbon, with the project SEGNALATI, that took place from 16 to 19 November (First Exhibition) 20 to 23 November (second Exhibition), in the stunning exhibition hall of the "Meeting Art" of Lisbon.

I am honored to be as one of 60 international artists selected by Salvatore Russo who is a famous Italian international art critic. Two of my works were published in SEGNALATI directed by Salvatore Russo, and he gave me a great critique.

“Water and fire. Dragon and Condor. All this comes to life through the painting of Pu Wei. The cold of water seems to make love with the heat of the fire. Her meditations taste like infinity. Infinity that examines the beauties of our world and contemplates them in silence. Hers, is an art that gets directly to the heart. An Art that is characterized by a rare-made chromatic romanticism.Through her visual arguments, Pu Wei leads the bystander in what is a new reality. A reality that does not take into account the rational action of the sign. A reality free from all external conditioning. ”
