Artist Hiejin Yoo embodies the term ‘global citizen’. “I was born in Germany but grew up in South Korea,” she explains. After completing a BA at Seoul Women’s University, Hiejin moved to the US in 2011 to study painting and drawing at School of the Art Institute of Chicago. After completing first a BFA and a post baccalaureate at the school, Hiejin upped sticks again, this time heading west to Los Angeles. “Each place has very different environment and I am not afraid of moving to new cities,” she tells us. “Being in a new place gives me fresh ideas and experiences. Sometimes people tell me they can see LA colours in my paintings since I live in LA.”
