Co-founder of the ART021 Shanghai Contemporary Art Fair, Kelly Ying is one of China’s most well known collectors of contemporary art.
As a veteran collector with over ten years of collecting experience, Kelly Ying is both practical and emotional. With a background in the fashion industry, Ying has now turned all of her attention to art. Kelly has a sharp eye for work that has a strong potential in the market, however she also supports young and emerging artists whose works strike a chord with her own aesthetic pursuits.
The art that Kelly keeps in the warehouse is very different to the work which she fills her home with – where she specifically selects pieces that match the design of her home with the right size and color. Here, Ying shares installation views from her home that show the personal side to her private collection.
