Biography
Diana Un-Jin Cho was a fibre and visual communications design major at the Alberta College of Art + Design. Her one-of-a-kind work inspired by traditional Korean textile practices like ‘chogak” has been displayed in solo and group shows in Canada, United States and Wonju, South Korea since 2007. In 2017, examples of her elegant translations were seen at Calgary’s Glenbow Museum as part of a major fibre exhibition, Through the Eye of the Needle. Her work is found in private and public collections including the Alberta Foundation for the Arts and The City of Calgary, Civic Art Collection. As well, she has produced several commissions for commercial buildings throughout Calgary.

Artist Statement

“ The YW project was an important one for me to undertake because I for one am a woman and a mother and I support YW’s vision and mission to assist and empower the women in our city. For almost 10 years, I have been sponsoring two girls in Mexico supporting them financially and spiritually but YW’s project made me realize there are girls in our city whom are also in dire need of care and attention. I’m excited to be part of this project and creating pieces for YW building for my first public commission is truly meaningful.”
