Sung Jin Oh is a Korean-American visual artist, installation artist, and registered architect who lives and works in Harlem. Sung Jin’s photography and installations examine the architecture of place and aestheticize the quotidian encounter.
In June 2011, Sung Jin’s ongoing work was first presented at ‘Summer Showcase 2011’ by the InterArts Fellowship’s Center for Faith & Work. Since this initial exhibition, Sung Jin’s work has been featured at the New York Foundation for the Arts, Rush Arts Gallery, and Crossing Art Gallery. During the summer of 2012, ‘Plastic Bottle Pyramid,’ Sung Jin’s first public collaborative installation work (with Barbara Lubliner), was constructed at the East River Park in Brooklyn as a part of the ‘Perpetual Energy’ group sculpture show.
Sung Jin received a Bachelor of Building Science in 1996 from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Bachelor of Architecture in 1997. In 1999, Sung Jin assisted a summer design studio at the Yanbian University of Science and Technology in China and was appointed guest lecturer.
