Hi, I am Misoon.
I am a South Korean contemporary artist currently based in Florida.
Ever since I was young, I have been drawn to expressing myself through creativity. Early on it was clear that I had a passion for painting and drawing.
I attended the N.C School of the Arts in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where I majored in Visual Arts. It was during this time that I honed and developed my craft and laid the foundations for the artist I am today.
Following this, I relocated to New York City, where I studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The Cooper Union. While I was at this pioneering institution and living in the vibrant and dynamic big apple I gradually discovered my artistic identity and distinctive style. After graduating, I worked for the artist, Allan McCollum where I gained extensive knowledge and experience in contemporary art industry traveling the world.
Throughout my rich and diverse career, I have primarily focused on abstract visual art. My mixed media paintings explore our emotional relationship to nature through muted abstractions of aqueous vistas — oceans and rain, sky-scapes and earth. The work is a form of thoughtful extraction: drawing out elements from those landscapes that soothe and inspire us, that strengthen our kinship to nature, and representing them with mixed media, primarily acrylic, on canvas.
However, my artistic approach is fluid and I am passionate about finding different ways to express myself and connect with the viewer.
I have placed work in Great Hall of Cooper Union, A.T. Hun Art Gallery in Savannah, GA, Manatee Art Center in Bradenton, FL, Coco Naples Art Gallery in Naples, FL and private collections in Florida, Tennessee, Alabama, Oklahoma, Washington DC, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and California. I am a supporter of the Spaaces Foundation and was one for the participating artists with the 'Princeton Street Arts' in Sarasota, FL.
I am a member of Naples Art District in Naples, FL located at Art Edge Gallery and Studio LLC.
Most recently I was selected as one of 40 artists to be a part of 13th Biennial National Art Exhibition hosted by Visual Arts Center in Punta Gorda, FL. I also work with local interior designers creating commissioned art for various custom -built homes and office spaces.
