Gallery Imazoo in Gangnam

Last weekend I met up with an associate from Artpoli, who helped me set up something on the website. Afterwards, we took a little tour of a gallery nearby. It is called, "Gallery Imazoo" and has a showroom on the basement floor and a cafe up top.

The artwork on display were paintings by the artist, Lee Yu Mi. The subject matter mostly being figurative and very colorful.

I was pleased with the artwork, but not overly taken by the works. They seemed to reference Picasso, but altogether done nicely. Also I was wondering where she got her references from since most of the figures were not Korean, mostly people with blonde heads. I wondered if this was some kind of aspect of her statement. I look forward to going to more shows at this gallery, as now know where to find it.

My friend and I parted ways and as I waited for my ride I took in the local Gangnam architecture.

It's hard for me to describe how to get to this gallery, but if you get off at Yeoksam station and go out of Exit 4 and up to the POSCO building, you want to travel in the alleyways around there. Anyways, it's something to consider that there are several galleries in the back alleys of Gangnam.
