Yeo Wool: Calligraphy Art

Yeo Wool’s calligraphic work includes many famous poems, Bible verses, a reproduction of the Korean Declaration of Independence, and drawings of the Four Gracious Plants (plum, orchid, chrysanthemum, and bamboo). Produced with the use of calligraphy brushes and ink on traditional Korean drawing paper, the work on view showcases Yeo Wool's love of learning, calligraphy, poetry, literature and art.

Artist Statement

Yeo Wool, pen name for Kyeong Bun Cho, has been producing calligraphic writing and Eastern art since 2008.  Since she was young, she loved calligraphy, and she was determined to become a calligraphic artist.

Born and raised in Korea, she immigrated to the United States with her husband and children in 1988, and worked with her husband in the family business. She also worked as an audio editor and producer at a local Korean radio station in San Diego. Upon her retirement in 2008, she began her calligraphy with lessons from a famous Korean calligraphy teacher. Since then, she has had four exhibits. Yeo Wool moved to Las Vegas in 2019 and started teaching calligraphy at Howard Lieburn Senior Center. Her class continues to grow in attendance, and she now teaches classes twice weekly. She finds joy and meaning in sharing her skills with others. Her students' exhibit is scheduled for June 6, 2024 at Howard Lieburn Senior Center.

Yeo Wool has donated all her work for the benefit of the Global Children Foundation, Korean American Leaders Association, and the Las Vegas-Clark County Library District. Any profits from the sale of her work will be distributed among these non-profit organizations. For sale inquiries, contact Michelle Cho at 702.721.9061.
