biography
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 artists childhood.
Minyoung Choi (born in Seoul, lives and works in London) 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. She has had three solo exhibitions, ‘On Water Under Snow’ at Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff (2017), ‘We Go Forward/We Come Back’, Olvera Contemporary Art Centre, Spain (2017) and ‘White Soda’ 63 Sky Art Museum, Seoul (2013). She has been involved in group exhibitions at Rebecca Hossack Gallery, Griffin Gallery, Exchange House, GX gallery, Austin Forum, The Mall Galleries, The Crypt Gallery (London), Museum of Art SNU, Hangeul National Museum (Seoul) The Art Foundation (Athens) and Darren Knight Gallery (Sydney). She undertook the Olvera Contemporary Art Centre Residency in Spain in 2017.
As a proud sponsor of the Wells Art Contemporary (WAC) International Open, Andelli Art were delighted to present Minyoung as the winner of the 2018 Next Generation prize. Minyoung Choi’s other accolades include the Henry Tonks Prize (2017) as well as being shortlisted for the Beep International Painting Prize, Gilchrist-Fisher Award and Dentons Art Prize (2018), the Almacantar Studio Award, Tiffany & Co. x Outset Studiomakers Prize, Chadwell Award and Lynn Painter-Stainers Prize (2017), the Wells Art Contemporary Award (2016).
