Tinggal dan bekerja di Beijing, He Wenjue merupakan bagian dari perupa-perupa kontemporer yang senantiasa mengangkat gagasan konseptual melalui penguatan narasi dalam unsur-unsur simbolik. Ia memegang gelar pascasarjana dalam bidang seni lukis modern dari Jilin Academy of Fine Art, kendati dalam jelajah kekaryaannya telah meluas jauh dari disiplin seni lukis dan dunia dua dimensional. Wenjue banyak mengetengahkan sikap filosofis dan upaya-upaya reflektif atas keberadaan manusia, terutama dalam caranya mempertautkan material mulia dengan sentuhan dan aktivitas manusia sendiri. Ia cukup sering memanfaatkan bahan porselen sebagai bagian dari pernyataan artistik yang sedemikian rupa, selain juga mempergunakan berbagai bahan lainnya yang meninggalkan kesan dramatis dan punya kesan istimewa dalam dimensi-dimensi yang menggugah.

He Wenjue terpilih melalui proses open call. Ia menjalankan program residensi JCCB4 di Tanteri Studio Pejaten- Bali, pada Agustus 2016.
