Giant Robot is proud to present the art of Jeana Sohn at GRSF.
Jeana Sohn was born in Korea, where she completed a program in graphic design at a local university. Jeana moved to the U.S to study character animation at CalArts. Her drawings and paintings combine the straightforwardness of children’s book illustration with the subdued color palate of weathered folk signage and free-flowing composition of street art. In 2005, she was commissioned to design t-shirts and buttons for Death Cab for Cutie.
For “Eating Grass,” Sohn is painting with acrylic on wood panels, paper, and old book covers as well as wooden eggs. Topics include but are not limited to boys, girls, flowers, awkwardness, stillness, quiet, swimming, and sharks, The 50 pieces will be linked by an implied, non-specific narrative that relates unrelated objects and events.
A reception for the artist will be held from 6:30 – 10:00 on Saturday, June 24.
