Using drawing, painting and mixed media as the most fragile and delicate gesture, she invents her own visual language. Ju Young Ban’s universe is strongly inspired by nature. The images and shapes she creates represent the growth of living creatures as a natural phenomenon; and the process of developing ideas she goes through comes from her own experiences. Her work stands as a constant search for fundamental truth and beauty in life. Including 5 solo exhibitions between Korea and the United States, she has been nationally and internationally exhibited along with her artistic contemporaries. In 2008, she did a residency program at Vermont Studio Center.
