Myong Kurily Brings The World To Chicago

Myong Kurily has a whole lot of the world inside her, and it translates into her art. She’s an equal-opportunity artist who loves to paint on sheets of acrylic as much as she likes to paint on canvases. She likes incorporating Eastern-influenced animals as much as she likes using Victorian-styled female characters. Kurily might have gotten a name out for herself through crafting clothing and kicks for Grammy award-winning rapper Lupe Fiasco, but at her upcoming solo show, Utopist, she will prove that she is just as much a standalone artist as anyone. Utopist will also showcase Kurily’s first large-scale art installation, and judging by her other works, it should be worth checking out.

View the flyer below for more details about the show at Phaiz!

Vivian Hua 華婷婷 is a writer, filmmaker, and organizer. As the Executive Director of Northwest Film Forum in Seattle and Editor-in-Chief of the interdisciplinary arts publication, REDEFINE, much of her work unifies her metaphysical interests with her belief that art can positively transform the self and society. She regularly shares human-centered stories through her storytelling newsletter, RAMBLIN’ WITH VEE! In 2020, she will [hopefully] begin production on a comedic Asian-American series entitled Reckless Spirits.
