As a culturally displaced artist, Joo Yeon Woo has been drawn to the theme of cultural displacement and identity, and to social psychological and cross-cultural studies that are heavily influenced by immigrant experiences. Her artworks mostly consist of drawing, painting and photography, and more specifically in the fusing of these media, such as acrylic painting on a digital pigment print, video from a still image, photography from a paper collage.

Joo Yeon Woo has exhibited nationally and internationally, including Sejong Museum of Art in Seoul, Korea; The Vargas Museum at the University of the Philippines; Asia Contemporary Art Show in Hong Kong and Art Gwangju in Korea. She has participated in several international artist-in-residence programs including VCCA, Red Gate Residency in Beijing and Contemporary Yunnan in Kunming, China. She also received the Korean National Art Festival Award at National Museum of Contemporary Art and was selected for the Korea Young Artists Biennale. She received her MFA from the Pennsylvania State University and an earlier MFA from Hongik University in Korea and BFA from Kyungpook National University in Korea.
