Bo Mi Jo born in South Korea is an artist and a brand designer based in New York. Art is her loving companion for life. Her passionate talent in art has been recognized with numerous awards in painting, calligraphy, music, and writing since she was a child.
She moved to New York City in 2008 to study advertising at School of Visual Arts and graduated with honors in 2011. When she was in school, she has received numbers of awards in major international advertising shows, including The ADC annual awards and Clio awards.
While she pursued her career as a brand designer after graduation, life in the fast-paced city swept herself along by everyday tasks. She found that her mind was floating all over the place and losing the mindful connection with the present moment. She questioned what art should do in the busy city life and started the concept and practice of ‘the power of the present: Placid Lake’ in 2016. In 2018, she introduced her ‘Placid Lake’ series to the public. Her art was invited to AD Art Show at Sotheby in New York and ArtExpo New York 2018. Her art drew considerable attention from galleries and art professionals, and she is participating in more than eight exhibitions in next 12 months.
