Born in Busan, Korea in 1945, Ouhi Cha received her BFA from Chung-ang University, Seoul in 1985. She moved to Germany and painted in Berlin since 1981.

Cha has had numerous solo and group exhibitions in Korea, Japan and Germany.

She had one-person exhibitions at the Gallery Georg Nothelfer, Berlin (1990-2017); at the Gallery Shirota, Tokyo (1994, 1997 and 2000); at the Watergate Gallery, Seoul and Chang Art, Beijing, in 2010.

Her works are in the permanent collections of the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul, Samsung Museum of Art Leeum, Seoul, Busan City Museum, Pusan and Kupferstichkabinette, Berlin among others.

Cha has often compared her personal life to travel.  Her “The ship of Odyssey” in the early 1990s, “Stray Thought on Sails” in the late 1990s, and “Sail as Wing” in the 2000s all show that the keyword of her art is travel.
