Hyemi Cho

Born to Korean parents Cho grew up in Japan in an emotionally charged home. She witnessed her traditional father’s male chauvinism and the disastrous oppressive effect it had on her mother. Her paintings, full of symbolism are Cho’s personal stories. Her works are representational – primarily portraits and human figures in which she explore internal emotions of her own and others she observed. Passionate painter, she has a talent for detail, lovely shapes, and soft colors making more palatable the raw emotions on the canvas.
