Young Sun Han is an emerging artist and curator based in Auckland, New Zealand and Chicago, United States. Born in the Chicago suburb of Skokie, Illinois, he was highly influenced by stories of survival and tragedy in this largely Jewish community. Stories of his own family's war-torn past of escaping North Korea ignited an interest in 'what could have been', usually pondered while perusing old photo albums.
Art saved Young's life during a tumultuous coming of age, and he has pursued it around the world ever since.
