Guan Yan came upon island6 at the SH Contemporary Art Fair 2012 and was mesmerized by one of our furniture artworks, The Dualism of White and Black. The gutsy girl from Chongqing then got hold of our flyers and emailed us - talk about passion!

Yan set her heart on a career in the creative industry, and so majored in Sociology in Shanghai, then went on to study Communication in Melbourne. Afterwards, she travelled and lived around China, stopping in Shanghai, Beijing and Xiamen, delving into the advertising, magazine and art sectors.

From the moment she joined island, Yan proved herself indispensable with her cool, collected demeanour and razor-sharp organisational skills. She co-ordinated island6's The Cat that Eats Diodes, The Open Sky exhibition in Chongqing, Need.Want.Hunt. and Body-City-Mechanism, in addition to many others, as well as assisted in artwork production. Yan brought to the team her PR and marketing experience, gallery know-how and effective bilingualism.

After two years as an indispensable team member, Yan left island6 in 2014 to pursue a new creative career.
