Jiji Ryoo

Visual Artist / Mixed Media

Jiji Ryoo is an artist from South Korea, where she received her Fine Arts Degree, and is currently living in Leonia, NJ where as an entrepreneur she operates a Fine Arts Prep School for High School students. Jiji chose to work in the 2D/3D design field as a graphic artist because she recognized that technological advances are an evolutionary part of our consciousness. This understanding, and belief, has driven her interest and studies of perception: the borders between what is considered real (Object/Body), what our mind perceives (Image/Context) and how that translates into what we believe is real (Light/Senses/Memory). To study and practice these different elements, She usually works with various multimedia, incorporating resin, concrete, digital photograph and other various materials. Jiji has also recently shown in Reds to Blues curated by Norton William, at PeepShow Space, Brooklyn NY.
