About the artist

Seong Cho has been a practising artist for over 40 years, with works spanning the mediums of painting, sculpture and printmaking. 

Since 2011, Cho has focused on her craft as a printmaker, and since then has quickly garnered recognition and accolades for her works. 

Cho is a member of the Sydney Printmakers and has attended artist residencies in Venice and Barcelona.


Seong Cho was born in South Korea and has called Australia home for more than thirty years.

Her art combines elements of her cultural heritage with aspects of contemporary abstract art practice.

Cho’s works are inspired the natural world and the lived human experience, and she seeks to capture the beautiful, the terrible, the somber and the sublime in her prints.
