Janet Echelman – biography
. His art is worthy of being watched carefully, to get lost and enjoy a moment of life differently.
Echelman has decided to become an artist after graduating college. She moved to Hong Kong in 1987 to study Chinese calligraphy and brush painting. Later he moved to Bali, Indonesia, where he collaborated with artisans to combine traditional textile methods with contemporary painting. When he lost his bamboo house in Bali for a fire, Echelman returned to the US and began teaching at Harvard. After seven years as Artist-in-Residence, is back in Asia, following a Fulbright professorship in India.
