Beom Sul Choi was born in 1904, grew up during the 1920s and was inspired by the artistic culture of the time. Important artistic innovations that had been established in the earlier part of the 20th century continued to be developed during the 1920s and 1930s. During this period the careers of many influential and pioneering artists began to blossom, yet at the same time there was an atmosphere of consideration and sombreness following the horrors of the First World War. Major shifts in politics were taking place worldwide, and Marxism took a strong grip as an ideology within artist groups and communities. The main focus for art at the time was on Freudian theory and the human subconscious, and these ideas were best represented by artists including Salvador Dali, Giorgio de Chirico, Andre Breton, Rene Magritte and Paul Delvaux, whilst in Paris, artists such as Brancusi, Modigliani and Soutine developed methods of art which were vivid and dynamic.
