We chose Minyoung because we were drawn to the magical, surreal qualities of her work. Over the past year (since her WAC win) she has developed a body of work that has greatly impressed us, and Minyoung is, in our opinion, a powerful emerging artist and definitely one to watch.
Minyoung Choi’s paintings echo her other practise as a poet – the surreal scenes suggesting an extended narrative that the viewer can only continue in their imagination. Often, anthropomorphic animals inhabit her fairy-tale landscapes, occupying the spaces and interacting with the objects that symbolise memories of the artist’s childhood.
Minyoung was born in Seoul, South Korea and now lives and works in London. She recently graduated with an MFA in Painting from The Slade School of Fine Art (UCL, London), having completed an MFA and BFA at Seoul National University’s Graduate School and College of Fine Arts respectively.
