MEET DO-HO SUH

In this latest installment of the blog, we cast the spotlight on this well-deserving artist with an eye for detail and a mind for innovation.

Do-Ho Suh, a Korean sculptor and installation artist based both in Seoul and New York City, is renowned for his ghostly architectural installations and polyester sculptures. His work centers on how we perceive the things around us, and how we manufacture moments from a space.

Suh’s work has been represented in numerous museum collections including the Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art and Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. His pieces have also been displayed in Tate Modern in London and Mori Art Museum in Japan amongst many others. His international recognition comes as no surprise, with his signature translucent polyester sculptures recreating anything from a replica of his own personal bathtub to ornate oriental arches.
