About Ah-young Jeon
Ah-young Jeon decided to travel to the United States in 2004 from South Korea to study art in San Francisco. Jeon received both her BFA and MFA in San Francisco. Jeon's professional practices have included figurative sculpture, installation, and mixed media. After Jeon earned her MFA, her perspective on the arts shifted significantly, allowing her to focus and develop her current concepts. Aspects of the sociological are closely linked to the concepts behind the work. The striking colors that are present in Jeon's work resonate with the viewer through the simplicity of design, while strongly relating to the concepts present. Ah-young Jeon is currently living and working in South Korea.
