Hyun Jung Ji, born in South Korea, now currently lives and practices as a professional 

painter in Los Angeles, California.


She gained formal training as a painter at the Art Centre College of Design in Pasadena, CA 

where she began to develop her unique illustrative style and meticulous approach to painting.


Hyun’s works are inspired by her childhood. Her painting plays a role as a medium to connect 

herself of the past with herself of the present. She faces the inner chaos that lies most deeply 

in her memory to confront the avoided trauma. She produces engaging narratives populated 

by multiple figures of herself. Her works evoke a sense of fantasy and the subconscious.
