BIO

MIJIN KWON

Born and raised in the Republic of Korea

Lives in San Francisco, CA


In 2019, Mijin earned her BFA in Fine Art (Painting and Drawing) from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Currently, also from the Academy of Art University, she is pursuing her MFA in Fine Art (Painting and Drawing). She has participated in solo and group exhibitions and was selected as one of the artists from the Southwest Art Magazine's "21 Under 31" in 2021.

Mijin is inspired by the San Francisco Bay Area with the amazing variety of architecture and different moods of the city with the light, the unique setting, and variety of weather, so her paintings are created as representational urban landscapes. Her paintings are driven by the composition, color, and atmosphere, and are mainly oil on canvas.
