Ying Ge Zhou was born in Guangdong, China and came to Creative Growth in 2010 with a strong aptitude for drawing and painting. Whether she works from fashion magazines or her imagination, Ying Ge creates enigmatic portraits rendered in simple lines, and suffused with watercolor. Ying Ge has developed a highly-skilled ability to bring static images to life with her vibrant and elegant portraits that evoke movement and emotion. She sometimes plucks lines of text from these advertisements, like “slouchy” or “safe, secure, discreet,” lending an element of unexpected humor and irony to her graceful compositions.

Recently, Ying Ge has been combining paint and embroidery on fabric to bring texture and dimensionality to her signature style. Her latest work combines this portrait practice with dreamlike images of figures floating amongst teapots, flowers, and imaginary buildings.
