All Eyes On: Woosik Choi

About Woosik

Woosik Choi is a visual artist based in New York. His work explores the history of individuals, communication, and relationships based on drawing. Through his artistic practice, Woosik visualizes the world he faced in art forms through his visual vocabulary by capturing not only the real-life situations and moments he experienced, but also the history of others. He received his MFA in Fine Arts from School of Visual Arts, New York, 2022. Woosik has exhibited his work at venues including New Collectors gallery, SVA Chelsea gallery, Main Street Arts, Starta Arta and LIC-A. He was selected for “Honorable Mention” by Main Street Arts


My artistic practice is exploring the relationship between the world I encountered and me who is in it. Like interpreting and expressing the world a child faces in his own way, I visually translate the world I interpreted from my own perspective. The world I translated is visualized as warm sceneries, spaces, and stories in my work thus inducing inner peace though lyrical sentimentality. Drawing is a key means of my practice. For me, drawing has a relatively free and flexible format compared to other art genres, and is a tool for tracking / and instant visualizing the flow of unconscious images. I attempt to expand my world into various forms with my own visual vocabulary, which is intimacy, symbolism, delicacy, and a dreamy atmosphere through drawing.
