Cody CHOI (코디최)... Artist Biography

[gallery submission]


Artist Statement


Like cold weather, "culture" is invisible, but it definitely exists, surrounding and influencing us as individuals. Therefore, I agonized over the reason of this existence, as well the restrictions of an artist. Therefore, I have been persistently focusing on the phenomenon where two different cultures clash, creating the third-culture.
