Artist Li Wei has always pushed the boundaries of art, but he has really taken his latest work to new heights.

The Chinese photographer dressed as a monk and suspended himself in the air by wires to perform this illusion.

He then shoots red smoke out of his shoes to create the effect of flying.

These dizzying pictures were taken over the Fontaine of Lyons at La Villette in Paris.

He says he never uses computers or special effects, just mirrors, wires, scaffolding and acrobatics.

Creating hair-raising performances to convey his continual sense of lost gravity, Wei has taken his work all over the world.

'My work and artistic experience are characterized by a unique specificity and particularity,' the 37-year-old artist from Beijing has said.

Brave: He says he never uses computers or special effects, just mirrors, wires, scaffolding and acrobatics.

The artist loves the reaction that his work evokes from people who pass it on the street.

Mission: Creating hair-raising performances to convey his continual sense of lost gravity, Wei has taken his work all over the world

New heights: Born in Beijing in is work is a mix of performance art and photography that creates illusions of a sometimes dangerous reality

He added: 'The first reaction is astonishment. Some people think they are full of sense of humor. They are curious about how I did this.

'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.'

Li Wei sees his art as both a mission to set the scene for the perfect photograph and a perfect performance.
