Best Artist on the Brink of World Domination

Jiha Moon

Staff Pick

Down here south of the 35th parallel, there's no shortage of peach-related imagery. But no one's quite got the angle on it like painter JIHA MOON. The Korea-born Atlantan not only brings out the erotic side of Georgia's favorite fruit, but throws in Microsoft butterflies, toxic clouds, surreal kimonos and airborne tree limbs swirling in the fantasy space of a postmodern Hokusai purgatory. Art spaces around the country – from Moti Hasson Gallery in New York to Houston's Museum of Fine Arts – have taken notice, and Atlanta's Saltworks Gallery made sure to bring Moon to a hometown crowd. We're sure it won't be long before she's orbiting around the rest of us mere mortals high in the art stratosphere. www.jihamoon.com.
