About Artist

Min, Jung-Yeon lives and works in Paris after her graduation from Ecole Nationale Superieur des Beaux-Arts. She was born with a natural aptitude of depicting her eccentric imagination inviting the onlooker to experience her surreal and intimate vision. Her beautifully created organic forms flow and inhabit the imaginative space often together with her own figure or animals. Conveyed within the work is her interpretation of the relationship between fantasy and reality.
