living in Seoul. S. Korea e-mail : I usually paint the place where I lived. I’d like to express many cities in S. korea especially the place I've been through. I collected some images while I was walking along the street. And I found out some 'code’ ; a consistent appearance. I made it looks like a sort of container box as if there are incommunicative people living. Seoul is a symbol of redevelopment. And this ‘apartment land’ demanded us to get rid of our personality. But poor hillside village is more beautiful and has a unique style. I intended to embody it seems like unstable, on the verge of breaking up.

This art is very structural and historical and the overall tone is very nostalgic.
