Jiha Moon (b. 1973) is from DaeGu, South Korea and lives and works in Atlanta, GA. She received her MFA from the University of Iowa, Iowa City. Moon's gestural paintings, mixed media, ceramic sculpture and installation explore fluid identities and the global movement of people and their cultures. She says “I am a cartographer of cultures and an icon maker in my lucid worlds.” She often incorporates Asian popular culture, kitsch, low art and mythology into her practice.
Jiha Moon's work has been acquired by Asia Society, New York, NY; High Museum of Art, Atlanta, GA; The Mint Museum of Art, Charlotte, NC; Smithsonian Institute and Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, DC; Weatherspoon Museum of Art, Greensboro, NC; and The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, Richmond, VA. She was the 2011 recipient of the prestigious Joan Mitchell Fundation Painters & Sculptors Grant.
