JIHYUN RA Lives and works in Chicago, Illinois, U.S.

Jihyun Ra is a Chicago-based artist originally from Seoul, Korea. Her works are usually made with bright and colorful Acrylic colors on small sized canvases. Having come from a homogeneous culture in Korea, when Ra came into contact with the diverse population of Chicago it caused her to reflect upon the impact of a culturally diverse world. She started creating beautiful paintings of trees and animals with intricate patterns and a variety of shapes. These paintings are a reflection of the harmony she finds in a world rich in diverse cultures and customs, the world that she lives in now.
