Da Won (David) Choi
Christchurch / South Island
Da Won was born in Korea with vision and hearing problems. New Zealand sign language is his main form of communication.
Since coming to Christchurch at the age of nine he has been a student at the Van Ash Deaf Education Centre and now is a full time art student.
Pushing him along is his strong desire to overcome these disabilities through art work. Artist Min Kim has been his one and only art tutor from 2005 until the present.
Da Won received a Merit Award at the Darfield Art Exhibition in 2014.
