Youyi Echo Yan (b.2000, lives/ works in New York City)

Yan’s works usually present the metamorphosis of bodies in different contexts. She creates research-driven art that is based on a myriad of academic fields. Lately she explores the idea of mutated physical and cognition of the body in philosophy of mind, Zoology, Anthropology, and Eroticism in the forms of mixed-media sculpture.

Yan is pursuing a Studio Art major at New York University. Recent exhibitions include: Island of Light, at 559 W 23rd Street, New York, 2022. Werewolf/Ferryman (Relic), at Commons Gallery, 34 Stuyvesant St, New York, 2022.
