JooYoung Choi was born in Seoul, South Korea, and immigrated to Concord, New Hampshire by way of adoption. While completing her BFA at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, she was reunited with her birth-family. In 2012 Choi received her MFA from Lesley University (MA). Through painting, video art, animation and puppetry she blends auto-biographical narrative with fantasy. Her artwork is organized around a paracosm (a highly structured imaginary world) called The Cosmic Womb. Choi has been included in exhibitions across the United States and South Korea. In 2007 she received a Somerville Arts Council LCC Cultural Heritage Grant. Her work has been featured in The Boston Globe Side Kick, as well as Korean Quarterly.
