Misoon Whang

a contemporary artist based in Sarasota, Florida.

Misoon attended the N.C School of Arts in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where she majored in Visual Arts. It was during this time that Misoon honed and developed her craft and laid the foundations for the artist that she is today.

 

Following this, she relocated to New York City, where she studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Cooper Union. While she was at this pioneering institution and living in the vibrant and dynamic big apple Misoon gradually discovered her artistic identity and distinctive style. After graduating, she travelled the world working for the artist, Allan McCollum where she gained extensive knowledge and experience in contemporary art industry.

 

Throughout her rich and diverse career, Misoon has primarily focused on abstract visual art. Her mixed media paintings explore our relationship to nature through muted abstractions of aqueous vistas — oceans and rain, sky-scapes. The work is a form of thoughtful extraction: drawing out elements from those landscapes that soothe and inspire us, that strengthen our kinship to nature, and representing them with mixed media, primarily acrylic, on canvas.

Her artistic approach is fluid and she is passionate about finding different ways to express herself and connect with the viewer.

 

Misoon has placed work in Great Hall of Cooper Union and private collections in Florida, Tennessee, Alabama, New York and California. She also works with local interior designers creating commissioned art for various custom -built homes.

She is currently showing at A.T. Hun Art Gallery in Savannah. GA
