GYOPO by artist Lauren Hana Chai

$ 1,800.00
Oil and mixed media on canvas/hanging scroll, 25” x 54”

"Gyopo" is the Korean word for a Korean person living outside of Korea. This term can sometimes have some negative connotations behind it from native Koreans seeing gyopos as having lost touch with their Korean roots. Being a Korean American myself I wanted to paint gyopos in a positive light. This gyopo is not afraid to be sexually open, show her skin and tattoos, and be an individual even though it may go against Korea's norm.
