Eun Nim Ro



Eun Nim Ro came to Hamburg as a nurse in the beginning of the seventies. The culture shock and the psychological distress marked her attempts to enter the western society for years. She has not planned a career as an artist right from the start although painting had always been an inexhaustible well of creative inspiration for her. Her work is not restricted to the image; it is seeking to connect to other disciplines like performance, calligraphic action painting, ceramics or installation and has a very strong character of its own.

1946born in Tjonchoo, Republic of Korea
1970Emigration to Germany
1973 - 79Study of painting at the University of Fine Arts Hamburg

Eun Nim Ro lives and works in Hamburg
