Choi Jeong Hwa: Size & Colour In South Korea

On September 12, 2014 by Lazer Horse

Choi Jeong Hwa (61) is a South Korean artist who likes to keep himself busy; Choi Jeong must in fact be one of the most prolific artists in the entire country, if not the world. I initially came across the impressive inflatable flowers that he’s dotted across the globe, but when perusing Choi Jeong Hwa’s back catalogue I was blown away by the sheer volume of work.

Much of Choi Jeong’ stuff is large scale and public, and all of it is playful and colour heavy. I’m assuming it doesn’t suit all tastes but I’ve lobbed a whole host of his stuff up here for you to meander through.

First off, here are a bunch of his ‘breathing flowers’ in South Korea and beyond:

But there’s more to Choi Jeong Hwa than massive inflatable flowers…
