Announcing our new March-May 2020 Art Exhibition

“Tae Young Choi: Solo Exhibition”

MARCH 7 2020, 7-10PM
APRIL 4 2020, 7-10PM
MAY 2 2020, 7-10PM

Tae Young Choi ‘Roy’ is a Korean American artist who has worked in the entertainment industry for more than 20 years, currently residing and working in Irvine, California. His most recent studio job was at Blizzard Entertainment working as a concept artist/illustrator on the StarCraft II video game cinematics.

Now, he has focused more of his energy on personal paintings and sculptures dealing with popular culture and his own philosophies. These include paper sculptures inspired by Japanese and Hollywood robots from 80’ and 90’s pop culture which he believes was the golden era. He paired these unique sculptures with oil paintings that depict them on a canvas medium. Throughout his travels, he also created watercolor paintings of simple locations and transforming them into a burst of colors, exuding an aura that seemingly captures the mood of the locale. Tae Young was previously a featured artist at our gallery on December 2015.

We welcome him back for a full solo exhibition at the gallery with exciting new works of art.

Join us for the opening reception with a watercolor art demo by Tae Young. First 10 people in line get a commemorative signed print by Tae Young Choi!
