I am an artist that specializes in painting. I currently live in Seoul, South Korea where I was born and educated and have a BA Degree (Textile) from Kyungsung University. To further my art studies I went to London in 1988 where I studied fine art at Byamshaw School of Art and City & Guilds at London Art School from 1989 to 1994.
Since 1990 to date I am working both as a painter and part time art teacher to the international and local communities and drawing for art & design student at Kungsong university in Korea. My paintings have been exhibited in many countries such as Korea, UK, USA, Italy, New Zealand, Australia, France, China, Malaysia, Arab Emirate and Singapore etc. Due to my extensive travels and exposure to many different art forms I have many ideas and techniques on which to build upon. Also, I am participating artist residency in other countries. Abu Dhabi Art Hub in Arab Emirate 2013. Rud Air in Sweden and Compagnie Culture and performance in Cagnes-Sur-Mer, South of France 2014
One of my main interests is in the human body which I have developed on a concrete level by analysis and interpretation through incessant life drawing. I do not wish however, to represent the human body in a figurative way as I prefer to express the emotions and the hidden feelings or the subconscious through linear rendering of the head, torso, arms and legs. I make my voyage through the canvas with rhythm, pattern, colour and line, and travel to a new world through a pictorial language. My personal sensibility brings forth this pilgrimage to canvas, nourished by the abstract, decorative, capricious, melancholy, musical, travel and self-educational themes.
My desire is to express both the warmth in our hearts on canvas and the efforts made by man to escape from the constraints of daily life, where freedom is confined by social conventions, environment, customs and traditions. I attempt to convey these feelings freely and instinctively in order that one can sense the same freedom as in the performance experienced in music, dance, drama, sports and even street art. I wish to express artistic freedom through a visual language.
