About the Artist
Ho Jae is a Korean-American artist working in New York. He is an interdisciplinary artist always combining different mediums to create his paintings. He uses 3D modeling programs and create drawings, like cartoons to frescos. These drawings are applied to painting surfaces using various methods such as transfers or paper cutouts. Once applied, paintings are treated with materials such as resin, glue, enamels, to prepare the surface for paint. Ideas of purgatory and flaccidity, combined with humor and cynicism are reoccurring theme for Ho Jae.
In 2018, The Erased Rauschenberg, a collaborative project with a fellow artist, Nikolas Bentel was shown at a private gala hosted by the New Museum, and then sold at an auction. Ho Jae has had a solo show at Sotheby’s Institute of Art, and held a solo booth at the recent Spring Break Art Show 2019. He remains to have two more solo in the remaining year of 2019, one with Established gallery, and another coordinated by a private art dealer.
