Recent Artworks

Ever since I came back to Korea, back in February, I have been itching to document my works of art from the past few years here. As you may recall I documented works from long ago while I was on vacation back in the States, but left my Korean works back in Korea. Anyways, I finally got out today during the morning hours and photographed my works. It was a bit fun trying to do this while people passed by. I did it in the park nearby where the sun was shining very well on a particular park bench.

The following are works from the past two years (some you might have seen before). 
  • "KoreAmerica 2"
  • Watercolor
  • 2011
  • Part of a series I am working on where I attempt to blend the space between Korea and America. Relates to my perception that both these countries are my home, and so exist together in my mind.

  2. If only I were talking about Apple cider. Actually I spelled it wrong as it should say, "cider".

    It isn't made from apples as far as I know.

    It is Korea's version of sprite, and is actually quite refreshing. Not as sugary.

  3. Wow. Very Very amazing.

    And I your portrayal of the most 'trivial' details of society, and Korea is very appreciative and creative. I don't think I've seen that anywhere before, and not by a Korean artist either, and definitely with not as much genuinity.
