    ...and his own acrobatic skills, honed from years of martial arts training

    The pictures feature Wei suspended in a string of impossible situations at locations across Hong Kong and China

    Others include images of him plunging through a car windscreen...

    ...embedded in ice...

    ...and floating mid-air with a bunch of friends perched on his back

    "I am fascinated by the unstable and dangerous sides of art and I hope my works reflect these aspects," he says

    "Sometimes I am in real danger - I have to hang myself high with steel wires and people do get a little worried for me - but I am fine"

    We can't help wondering whether it might not be easier - and safer - to use Photoshop

    Some of these pics are downright scary, especially the first one.

    Look at the air pollution in those murky backgrounds.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.
