Founded in 2015, WeShine Art Space is a Nanjing-based gallery aiming at powering the development of Chinese contemporary art. WeShine possesses 2 exhibition spaces, and has presented more than 90 solo exhibitions in the past five years. “WeShine” is the transliteration of its Chinese brand name “Wen Xiang”. As in this name, “Wen” indicates the meaning of inquiry or discussion and “Xiang” points out any single form of nature, humans or objects. “Wen Xiang” refers to pursuing and exploring the significance, form and trend of painting itself.
With building the urban culture and artistic atmosphere being one of the many responsibilities WeShine bares, the gallery also dedicates to integrate the function of promoting, selling, collection investing and exhibiting to power the development of Chinese contemporary art. WeShine establishes long-term collaboration with its artists, and continually helps fostering their careers while seeking for international communication/cooperation.
