Yuna Chun is born in the bustling city of Seoul, Korea but has spent her adolescent years in the mellow city of Melbourne, Australia. After finishing her BFA at RMIT University in Melbourne, she began producing works for a number of group and solo shows. Recently she has returned to Seoul and is spending time with her mum, brother and tiny dachshund Mandoo.

Her work depicts the geometric forms of urban structures combined with vibrant colours. The works are all delicately hand painted, and this also lends humanity to the structure through visible authentic mistakes. Yuna believes her work represents herself and so that she hand paints her work. She believes the traditional hand painting and sees it as putting her soul in to the piece which makes the work alive and be part of herself.
