The World: Through Grfids 

Participating artiests


As a true nomad, Juefang is a New York based, Chinese-born fine art
photographer who grew up in Singapore. Hoping to capture all the fleeting moments of her ever changing life, Juefang started to take photos at the age of 17. Her sensitivity is reflected in her ability to discover the often unobserved moments and the nuanced relationships between humans and nature. Combining her passion for travel and photography, in 2014, Juefang founded The Grids Studio. Juefang currently studies Cinematographer at New York University.

Ke Lin (Lucy) Liu

Ke Lin (Lucy) Liu  was born in China and raised in Vancouver, Canada. She is currently studying photography at the School of Visual Arts. The creative process of making an image fascinates Liu. She is drawn into the transformation of reality, beauty, and emotions through photography’s unparalleled vision. Photography is a way for her to organize and represent her emotions and thoughts, which are never static, but constantly changing as new ideas spring from old ones. Photography is a way for her to see and respond to the world. Ke Lin’s work has a narrative style as she hopes to take photographs that speak and inspire people.

Mulin (Eddie) Lyu

Mulin (Eddie) Lyu was born in Wuhan, China and currently studies at School of  Visual Arts, BFA photography in New York City. Lyu’s main focus is on cultural  documentaries and landscapes. Mulin often looks into people’s daily life, especially in those who need more help and care than others. Lyu believes that sometimes a simple photograph can say everything. Hence minimalism can be seen everywhere in his work, especially those in landscape.

Qimu Tan

Originally from Guangzhou, China, Tan currently lives in New York. Tan is a  photographer who devotes a majority of his time to portraits. In his observations, human bodies are of intense emotional colors and disparate tastes: from  gently touched fingertips,to beautifully lined necks, and bashfully exposed clavicles of young ladies. He loves to record disparately fascinated individuals who are gifted with unique personalities.  As can be seen in his work. Tan thinks that photos can track and save beauty with implications that cannot be expressed or duplicated through other mediums. Tan looks forward to capturing more of this uncaptured beauty.

Zhe Chen

Born in 1994 in Suzhou,China, Zhe Chen lives and works in New York. As a self‐taught photographer, he began to shoot photos during high school. Since 2013, Zhe has been studying in NYC with a major in mathematics. Professionally, he shoots portraits, fashion and commercial photography. In his personal work, he tends to focus on nature, which will often take him to the far outskirts of NYC. From time to time, Zhe also likes to shoot street photography in the city itself. In 2014, he founded Grid Vision Studio with other three partners and committed himself to create a multidimensional platform for young artists to perform.

Zhiyue (Will) Wang

Zhiyue (Will) Wang is an up-and-coming Chinese commercial photographer and visual artist based in New York. He is professionally trained in photography, with more than six years of experience in the field. A career in fashion management has enabled him to comprehend and adeptly apply the nuanced relationship between fashion elements and photography. He is competent in capturing high quality images and organizing materials for photo shoots while displaying confidence and professionalism at all times. As a visual artist, he is keen on using film photography as his preferred medium of observation and unique vocabulary of expression, as he skillfully combines philosophy and semiotics in his artworks.

Zilan (Sandy) Fan

Zilan (Sandy) Fan was born and raised in the Chinese city of Suzhou. A recent graduate of the School of Visual Arts’ Master of Professional Studies in Digital Photography program, he now works as a freelance editorial and advertising photographer in New York City.

Ziyin (Stephanie) Pan

Growing up in Shanghai and the San Francisco Bay Area, Stephanie Pan has seen and experienced two drastically different lifestyles, the chaotic metropolitan and the quiet suburban life. With her camera, she documents details of life as she travels back and forth between the Chinese city and the American suburb. Now living in New York City as a NYU Architecture student, Pan has been capturing moments when the vibrant energy of the people meets the stillness of surrounding spaces. Pan’s overall style is clean and simple; she hopes to find balance between chaos and calmness in the middle of the spectrum.

No, not "ouch". Pronounced OOH-WOO-CH-I, Ouchi is Japanese for "home" or "house". Our gallery is named Ouchi because we display artwork by contemporary Japanese artists in a home-like setting.
Art should be more than a business commodity. It should transform into our daily lives, awakening us with new thoughts and passions each day. The best art teaches that there are no limits to individual pursuits; that our own possibilities are infinite.
When you visit Ouchi Gallery, we hope that you feel both at home and inspired. Perhaps you will feel something exhilarating—a positive "ouch!"
