About The Artwork

This is one of my old work made in 2014. This project is based on my personal financial record(a housekeeping book which name is Academic Freedom) in 2012. Each painting stands for each month. So this painting is about my personal consumption in May 2012. The vertical axis shows how much money that I spent in this month, the horizontal axis shows each day. To explain, the biggest vertical bar on the left side stands for my house rent fee in this month. The colors of this painting is based on the weather in this month. So this painting is very colorful, playful.

Artist Yongmin Cho was born on January 11th, 1986, in Seoul, Korea. He began his art practice when he was in middle school. He continued in earnest his art career by perusing his education in Seoul National University of science and technology in South Korea from 2007, with metal smiting concentration. In 2012, he moved to Chicago and began to study fine art (painting) in The School of Art Institute of Chicago. Through his years at SAIC, he was inspired by many artists at AIC who depicted daily life with their unique style such as Edward hopper, David Hockney, Alex Katz, and Edouard Vuillard. He began to develop his personal style, creating representational paintings that showed the influence of those artists.
