Mijin Kwon, a Korean artist, specializes in capturing the essence of her surroundings through vibrant urban landscape paintings. Her passion for painting started when she was eight years old and led her to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in Painting and Drawing in 2019, followed by her Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Painting in 2023, both from the Academy of Art University (AAU). Throughout her artistic journey, she has participated in group exhibitions, such as the Spring Show (juried by the AAU's Fine Art department), and featured in several art magazines, including Southwest Art Magazine's “21 Under 31: Young Artists to Watch in 2021."

Her recent urban landscape series, titled ‘Moments at That Time: San Francisco,’ is a journey through life in San Francisco, a rediscovery of the comfort and familiarity left behind in her home country. Each painting captures moments that may be easily overlooked in the city's daily life, revealing its beauty through her unique perspective. Executed mainly in oil on canvas, her paintings reflect the city’s beauty through composition, color, and texture as representational urban landscapes. Drawing inspiration from the city’s diverse atmosphere, architecture, light, iconic setting, and varied weather, she skillfully shares her viewpoint with viewers.
