Seungkyung Oh

Seungkyung Oh (b. South Korea) is a Seoul and New York-based artist who uses her deep connection with nature and fantasy to rebuild a new version of the figures, the world, and herself, invocating a sense of mystery, enigma, and liberation. With aiming at sharing the real places she has traveled to with her viewers, along with the mental environments she creates to protect herself from socio-environmental stressors, harshness, and hopelessness, Seungkyung constructs the narrative of these figures’ lives, questions the utopian and dystopian possibilities they represent, by transforming figures into a plant that liberates itself from the confinement and violence of the world where everything has collapsed. Seungkyung earned a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts at the School of Visual Arts and an MFA at Parsons School of Design. She was awarded the North Georgia Distinguished Fellowship 2019, selected for an IBM Blue wolf Company Award 2017 in New York City,  and Korean Culture Minister Prize for Painting in 2010.
