Jay Choi graduated from the illustration course at Camberwell College of Art in 2008. Her tiny images of people waiting, walking, talking and embracing are all drawn from life, focusing on everyday, unguarded moments observed by the artist and captured in a few seconds of sketching. The work has an effortless and beautiful accuracy, personifying common human behaviors in an immediate and intimate style.
The artist becomes a still point in the hubub of urban life, observing and documenting both the crowd and the individual to present a universally recognizable catalogue of city life. Jay states of her work, “In that numberless crowd we are continually surrounded by others, we can see ourselves as we experience the same things, going through the same systematic steps in life, despite all our many differences. Sooner or later, we all head in the same direction.”
