Julia Long Biography

Julia (Di) Long (b.1984, China) is an artist currently working and living in Beijing China. Born in a family of three generations' practice in arts, she has chosen a discursive path that later led her way to the art world. Long earned her bachelor degree with highest honor in world history from Nankai University in Tianjin China, furthered her study in American history and gender history in University of Georgia with a full scholarship. She then moved to New York and worked as a restaurant publicist, while making art, doing illustration for magazines, translating articles, and hosting a podcast.
