I am painter artist.
Everything what I paint turn to philosophy.
Art beyond Identity
We believe that there is something universal, but is it true? I believe that the question has a logical foundation, given that what people believe universal has changed over the centuries. As an artist, I am standing on the border, translating the modern value and perspective into my work.
My background has formed the way I observe the world and the role of art. As an ethnic Korean minority, I was born and raised in Japan and was educated at a school affiliated with North Korea for almost 20 years. My parents and my school believed in socialism, although contradictorily I grew up in a capitalism society. My life in Japan had always been surrounded by two opposite values, making me believe that there is no universal justice.
Therefore, I do not judge. I objectively observe and represent the world from my own perspective.
