About CHO Yea Jae: CHO Yea Jae was born in South Korea in 1971. Resolutely modern with various interests in philosophy, society and the environment, she is an artist of contrast, illuminating the attraction of opposites. Her works are based on the continuous observation of the world around her. CHO Yea Jae considers herself a citizen of the world. She travels broadly, experiencing diverse cultures and touching many souls. Her encounters with multi-cultural backgrounds have contributed to her strong sense of empathy, and have inspired her with keen insights of the beauty of contrast, coupled with a deep understanding of humanity.
Through her works she expresses the simple conclusions drawn after the tortuous journeys of the mind and soul. To bring out the best on canvas she continually researches and develops new techniques. As a result, various meanings emerge from the same painting.
Humanity is strong and beautiful. This is what she ultimately believes in and with this in mind her “Ready to Open” series was born to deliver a message of HOPE. Who denies we need it the most to change for the better?
CHO Yea Jae was recently featured in 3 solo exhibitions in Hong Kong, Singapore and Paris. She largely works between Korea and Europe
