HYE JIN CHUNG - bio
Based in New York, artist Hye Jin Chung’s cheerful mixed media artwork utilizes cut paper and a rich, vibrant color palette. Friendly upbeat characters and well-dressed animals lead active lives in her illustrations - drinking coffee, swimming, reading, even body building. Inspired by her birthplace in tropical Singapore, Hye Jin’s work is often filled with verdant overgrown plants and greenery. She is the co-founder of Instant rabbit, a publisher of zines, prints and cards. Her ongoing personal project #projectpeoplebyhyejinchung features a charming series of people, each unique, marching along.
She received her MFA degree in Illustration as Visual Essay at the School of Visual Arts, New York in 2013.
