Younghwan utilizes visual art as a device to explore the epistemology changing over time and human nature. Specifically he is interested in the co-relationship between modern urbanization (architecture and infra–structure) and our changed perceptions as the result of the new environment.
Younghwan Choi was born in Jecheon, South Korea, in 1978. He received a BFA from Seoul National University in Seoul, Korea (2007) and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in Chicago, United States (2010).
Youngwan’s hybridized works—installation, sculpture, performance, painting and video—trace the history of the modern environments and re-interpret the meaning of their existence and the change of meaning over time. He lives and works in Chicago, United States.
