Artist Profile

Ji Minsun

지민선

Minhwa Artist
Korean Folk Painting

민화작가

Born 1977, Seoul, Korea.

Ji Minsun, a South Korea-born artist, studied Visual Design at college.

She turned a professional Minhwa artist in her late 20s. She currently teaches the painting at an extension program, Kaywon Art College in South Korea. it is not a co-incidence that the artist has swiftly adapted to a traditional style of Minhwa and altered it in her own due to her educational background.

A majority of Minhwa artists in Korea still adhere to the traditional motifs and subjects that date back to the 16th – 17th centuries. But, Minsun Ji tries to feature motifs and subjects that are universal, thus more appealing to people worldwide.
