Artist Website

JooYoung Choi was born in Seoul, SKR, and immigrated to Concord, NH, by way of adoption. While completing her BFA at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, she was reunited with her birth-family. In 2012, Choi received her MFA from Lesley University, Cambridge, MA. Through painting, video art, animation, and puppetry, she blends autobiographical narrative with fantasy. Her artwork is organized around a paracosm (a highly structured imaginary world) called The Cosmic Womb. Choi has been included in exhibitions across the United States and South Korea. In 2007 she received a Somerville Arts Council LCC Cultural Heritage Grant. Her work has been featured in The Boston Globe Side Kick as well as Korean Quarterly.
