Working from both fashion magazines and her imagination, Ying Ge Zhou creates enigmatic watercolor portraits rendered in simple lines. By adding lines of text from magazine pages to her graceful compositions, she often adds an element of unexpected humor and irony. Zhou skillfully brings static images to life, evoking both movement and emotion.

Ying Ge Zhou was born in Guangdong, China.

Zhou’s work has been shown in exhibitions at: Nina Johnson Gallery in Miami, Florida; Fraenkel Gallery in San Francisco, California; Gallery Paule Anglim in San Francisco, California; The Oakland Museum of California; and Andrew Edlin Gallery in New York City.
