With their pointed noses and wobbly limbs, the various characters Jeong Hwa Min creates strike a balance between the fun and the sinister. We really like the playful and surreal quality in Jeong’s screen prints and books, as well as the use of overlays and intense colours. Jeong’s pencil illustrations also capture a curious sense of fun and the unnerving in their larger, dreamy landscapes.
I am Jeong Hwa Min and was born in South Korea. Since 2006, I have been living and working as an illustrator in Berlin. I am currently studying illustration at the University of Art, Berlin. I am a cat lover, heavy smoker and curious observer of the people and the world around me.
