Ye Qin Zhu makes paintings, sculptures, installations, text and media arts. From 2014 – 2016, Zhu and his brother ran an art school called Redwood Art Studio. With an emphasis on exploration and personal growth, the school taught drawing and painting to the kids in the community they grew up in, Sunset Park, Brooklyn. In 2012, Zhu co-created Socotra Studio, a collaborative project exploring material property, ritual, craft, and function in the objects they make. From 2008 – 2012 and 2016 – 2017, Zhu was the Program Coordinator at Art Palestine International, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to exhibiting contemporary Palestinian art.
