Born in Chao-Zhao, Guang-Dong. Weng graduated from the Art Department of He-Bei Normal University in 1982 and from the Oil Painting School at the Central Academy of Art and Design in 1994. As an associate professor in the Central Academy of Art and Design, Weng's art is categorized as Chinese realism, which admires the traditional and emphasizes on humanism and rationality. Weng's works respect human emotions and lives, and uphold the truth and nature. While Chinese realism is successful in the art market, Weng and other realistic artists do not seek mere artistic perfection (which is rather a constant attitude for them) but are more concerned about historical and humanistic aspects. Weng's exhibition resume includes major national exhibitions such as the "China Annual Oil Painting Exhibition 91'", "Contemporary Chinese Oil Painting Exhibition", "To the New Age- Chinese Youth Oil Painting Exhibition","Exhibition of Chinese Oil Painting Society",and "Beijing Artistic Work Exhibition" (Excellent Work Award).
