Choi Jeong Hwa (Korean: 최정화, born 1961 in Seoul)[1] is an artist and designer whose work moves between the disciplines of visual art, graphic design, industrial design and architecture. His inspiration comes from popular culture and day-to-day life. Large-scale outdoor sculptures crafted from diverse materials such as consumer goods, balloons, wires, as well as recycled and found objects are the hallmarks of Choi’s playful repertoire.[2]

His White Lotus, a two-meter high flower made of inflatable polystyrene, was exhibited at the Venice Biennale in 2005.[3]
