Joey Foster Ellis

“Born in America, made in China and alive in Doha” has become a personal motto for TEDFellow and artist Joey Foster Ellis, who grew up in Auburn, New York. He prefers many names, such as Joey, Zhou-Yi or Yousef, for each one represents a certain identity that developed in the culture where the name evolved. Joey creates works illustrating that within the boundaries of culture, politics and self-expression there are possibilities for individuality – not dwelling on the limitations, but what can be utilized within them. Having lived abroad for almost 10 years, Joey has shared his artistic process on the many roads he has traveled, but never once told his story from where it originated. TEDxChemungRiver provides the perfect opportunity to do so. Joey couldn't speak until the age of five, was dyslexic and failed French multiple times. How he speaks fluent Chinese confounds him to this day.
