JOO JUNG MIN

A world of plants comes to life in varied colors in Joo Jung Min’s artwork. Joo captured the changing color of life, seasons, and of emotions of being with someone, in a mysterious colossal world of imaginative nature. The artist’s forest becomes the viewer’s forest as it reminds us that we, humans, in the end, belong to nature. The imaginative forest and its plants are recreated in a collage, in which each pieces are drawn, cut, and attached one by one by the artist herself. This collage takes on another form of life in her media art, with the forests changing and moving with serene background audio, more temptingly drawing in the viewer to experience the nature’s mystic. Breaking the prejudice that media art is not easy to purchase, Joo’s first media art was sold out to collectors from in and outside Korea. Joo is an active illustrator and artist engaged in wide variety of activities, working with magazines like Elle and W as well as fashion and cosmetic brands like Shu Uemura, Louis Quatorze, Long Shop on product design and advertisement.
