About this pro

I teach experimental abstracted painting in the tradition of Modernism. I attend School of Visual Arts in NYC as a BFA student in Fine Arts.

I love painting and teaching. It's very rewarding for me to engage in a creative process that results in the birth of a creative work. It's also very rewarding to transmit that knowledge and experience of creativity to another person.

    Chun is very professional, and very relatable at the same time. He has a high level of understanding of the fundamentals of art, and does a superb job of teaching this to beginners as well as advanced students.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I try to push the student to try out different styles and find the style or language with which he or she can work. I try to help the student develop theor original style or language.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I studied at the Art Students League of NY and School of Visual Arts.

How did you get started teaching?

I always wanted to be a teacher because teaching is a fulfilling and noble profession. After looking on craiglist, I started teaching art at Bee's Creative Art Studio in Edgewater, NJ, as well as private tutoring with friend.

What types of students have you worked with?

Children and adults, total beginners and hobbyists

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I went to eat chick fil-a and it was so good that I went to get a second sandwich. The lady at the counter laughed and gave me a chocolate cookie, saying "you are too precious ".

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Look at the teacher's body of work. Look at if they prioritize experimentation and originality in style or if they just emphasize technique. Teachers who emphasize technique will get you nowhere as a fine artist. There needs to be thought and personal philosophy involved in the creative process. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Students should try to look at as many works of art and different styles and movements before deciding on a particular style.
