island6 六岛 (Liu Dao) is a Shanghai-based collective of tech-geeks and creative talents whose driving force is collaboration. Since its inception in 2006, this dynamic international group has produced multimedia art that muses on the relationship between the delicate qualities of traditional art and the technical complexities of the contemporary. The collective’s ever expanding repertoire includes works in diverse mediums such as LED art, interactive art, neon, laser art, photography, painting, video art, and sculpture, among others.
Liu Dao has shown their work internationally in a variety of renowned spaces, including shows at the Rockbund Art Museum in Shanghai, Opposite House and Green T. House in Beijing, and the Smithsonian Anacostia Museum in Washington D.C. The collective’s work is included in the K11 Collection in Shanghai and the White Rabbit Collection in Sydney, among others. Liu Dao has also forged relationships with diverse international brands such as Adidas, Louis Vuitton (twice, actually), Chivas Regal, K11 Art Enterprises(a few times), Rolls Royce, and Lee Jeans, among others, as they aim to provide artwork that transcends a singular platform only displayed in formal galleries.
