This example of Chunwoo Nam’s Individual Story series demonstrates his mastery of many techniques in printmaking and drawing materials and portrays the challenges he has met being an Asian artist in America, as well as the assimilation of his family and ongoing issues that affect new generations. Later work, including performance art, video and sculpture, address political and economic issues associated with globalization.
