I was born in Seoul, South Korea and majored in fine arts at Seoul National University. After graduating from college, I worked at several different jobs using my artistic ability. My works were shown in several art exhibitions and my films were shown at many international film festivals. I have a lot of practical experience. I directed the design of the Korean Business Pavilion at Shanghai Expo 2010. From building design to all construction processes, I was responsible for the creation of the Korean branch of the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum. Since I came to the US, I graduated from Rochester Institute of Technology with an MFA in Studio Art in 2015, and I have shown my artworks in numerous exhibitions. I have also taught college students in a variety of art classes. Since my works were shown in Manhattan, NYC, I was invited to teach art workshops at the Queens Museum of Art in Queens, NY in 2015. I have a new art making workshop at the Memorial Art Gallery in May, 2016. These diverse experiences have helped me to be innovative in the contemporary art world.
