  • Biography
Yeonjoo Cho is a Korean-born visual artist, researcher, and educator based in Glasgow, United Kingdom. Her creative practice has focused on the idea of Oriental painting, traditional tropes of East Asian art, Orientalism, immigration and hybridised forms in art history. Starting with a question on the dichotomic division of Oriental and Western painting, her work contemplates how so-called Oriental images and tropes could embrace cultural others and hybrids.
