Monica Cho is a Korean-American painter born in Torrance, California. She was inspired by art at an early age by her aunt on her mother’s side but hadn't seen it as a passion until several years later. Monica started to pursue art further in high school and college. Monica attended the Art Institute of Chicago for a year. Then she transferred to the University of Parkside Kenosha. Monica plans on pursuing Art History as well as studying abroad. She decided to move back to Chicago to try to establish herself as an artist. Monica currently has a studio at Morpho Gallery which is a private artist gallery located in the area of Bowmansville.
Monica focuses mainly on oils, watercolor, and mixed media. Some of her inspirations are Matisse, Rothko, Monet, and Kandinsky. “The strokes of the paintbrush are like playing music and the colors are the notes. It can be a fast and exciting, or an emotional somber piece.”Although Monica loves to experiment with all different mediums of fine art, she finds a niche in painting, particularly oil painting.
