MEET THE ARTIST

Artist: Wei Jia

Art & design: Xuan paper is a semi-translucent rice paper that is traditionally used for Chinese calligraphy and landscape paintings. Thin and delicate as xuan paper is, its strength can sometimes distort a whole wooden frame. Wei Jia, fascinated by the paper’s versatility and texture, has been primarily using it in his art the past 30 years, which has shown in over 17 solo exhibitions in the United States. 

In this campervan design, Wei Jia lets the texture speak for itself - its fibers reconnecting the van with nature. The subtle off-white rice paper walls in the van provide a calming zen feel that goes well with light wood tones of the countertop, ceiling and flooring. The backlit Shoji upper cabinet door faces provide beautiful diffused accent lighting, like peaking at a traditional home.

As a daily practice for over 15 years, Wei Jia practices calligraphy daily for over 3 hours a day as a meditative practice. One of his favorite poems to practice calligraphy on is the “Peach Blossom Spring” - a story about an off-the-beaten-path ethereal utopia stumbled through spontaneous serendipity. The poem will be written on a small panel on the Passenger Sliding Door, and he hopes that one day when the door is opened, you too will discover the Peach Blossom Spring.
