David Choi

David Dawon Choi is an award-winning New Zealand artist who was born deaf and almost totally blind.

He started drawing at the age of three in his native Korea to communicate his thoughts and emotion. After moving to New Zealand at the age of nine, he drew inspiration from the natural world around him and the Maori culture of his new country to produce his intricate and detailed works.

However recently his works also covers small but precious things such as flavours of morning coffee, warmth of sunshine in the afternoon as well as heavy social issues such as pandemics or racial discrimination.
