PrattMWP Dean Donna Moran Talks With Sophomore Min Sin,
Fine Arts Painting Major
Where were you born?
Gwangju, South Korea.
Did you live there until you came to PrattMWP?
I lived there only for a couple of years before coming to the States.
Why did you decide to major in painting?
My family all love the arts and my mother is a painter, so I just naturally have an affinity for it. Painting is the one thing I’m decent at and there’s so much room for experimenting with it.
Which particular style of painting are you interested in?
It’s difficult to choose one when there’s so many that influence my process. I’ve always loved the vividness of Fauvism and the energy of action painting.
What campus activities have you participated in?
As a Pratt Peer, I got to meet and offer help to some freshmen. I’ve joined the Student Gallery Committee since I was a freshman and it has been a rewarding experience.
Is there anything you like to spend time on outside of school?
Besides working on personal paintings, I read and write. I’m always trying to discover new ways of expressing myself. I don’t want to limit myself to one medium.
When you are finished with your BFA, do you plan to stay in the Brooklyn/NYC area?
Most definitely. Living in Brooklyn was one of the main reasons why I chose Pratt. There is no art scene like New York City’s.
Any special interests?
I enjoy all sorts of art forms including music, so I go to live events and concerts. Driving with the radio blasting is always fun, too.
