Isolina Minjeong (b. 1997, Chicago, IL) lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ceramics from the Maryland Institute College of Art. Her work has been exhibited at NADA Miami (2023), the Spring/Break Art show (2022) and the Tchotchke Gallery (2022) amongst others.

Fueled by the ancient lineage of pre-Columbian and Korean stone carving, Isolina’s ceramic practice questions cultural narratives of antiquity by marrying tradition with manga imagery and lore. By juxtaposing representations of mythical creatures found in Incan temples alongside the rigidity embodied within Joseon Dynasty stone guardians, Isolina intricately weaves together ancient motifs with her expansive world of characters. Shameless in scale and response, her figures honor her familial heritage while simultaneously deconstructing and redefining cultural paradigms through craft.
