Boeeuen Choo: Spiritual Art

This Artist Showcase comes from Boeeuen Choo, who is inspired by the design and template of original tarot cards.

I always have been drawing – ever since I was young. And then I decided to pursue art as my career. My interest is in the design and template of original tarot cards, and that’s what made me decide to turn my drawings into versions of tarot cards – although some titles are made up and do not exist in the original tarot form.

Initially, I decide what title I’m going to work from, and then I’ll draw something from my imagination that connects with that title. I believe that being in a different country to my family, friends and culture really influenced my work. I was originally born in South Korea and I moved to the US when I was fifteen years old. I was young and alone in another country, with my family back in Korea. I think this experience influenced my view on everything, including art.

I hope that my work evokes emotion from the viewer. My goal is for the viewer to interpret the piece in their own way, as if they were looking in mirror.

If I were to choose a term other than Outsider Art, I think I would choose ‘spiritual art’. I think this term more accurately describes what I do. I like to work on different things at the same time, and more recently, I have been concentrating on pattern work.
