Kiwan Choi

Kiwan Choi (*1985 in Seoul) studied at the Kunsthochschule Berlin Weißensee and graduated in 2021 with a master's degree under Prof. Pia Linz.  

In a playful freedom of form, Kiwan Choi works his way to abstraction, it is a dialogue of forms and colors. He opens up spaces with his painting, every surface, every application expands the pictorial cosmos and the effect, every stroke is a personal expression. It is a warm-hearted, open, tender and very color-intensive way of working with a great painterly talent. His impressive abstract works are based on situations in playgrounds, which he interprets freely. For Kiwan Choi, the dynamics, movement and social encounters of groups are the basis of the Erased place series. He thus reduces perceptible reality and uses painting as an emotional force.  

Kiwan Choi received a special award with catalog at the Young Art Award 2022 and works have been included in the collection of the Kistefos Museum Norway.
