Artist Hiejin Yoo’s colourful look at the mundane


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.”
