Ellie Zhang 张莹
Ellie Zhang majored in Sculpture at the Hubei Institute of Fine Arts (HIFA) in Wuhan, graduating in 2013. Shortly after graduating she began working as a content editor for Phoenix Media in Beijing, a publication focusing on Chinese contemporary art. Prior to her work at island6, she spent time in another gallery for over a year, working closely with collectors and artists. It is this setting that resonates with Ellie the most: creative spaces bursting with ideas and unbridled creative energy. She moved to Shanghai in 2015 and joined island6 as a production assistant in order to focus on art, the pursuit of dreams, and a more suitable path in life.
