<Instinct, Oil on paper, 297 x 420 mm, 2017>
I focus on the one of the our instincts, the violence.
Sometimes we lust as destroy or give harm to something or some one.
i thought that is not wrong things. it's just nature.
At that time I was drunken
and i pick up my brushes and put some vigorous colours on the canvas.
Then i drop some oils on the surface for burn.
it burned and got some damages then i draw a human body on it with burned wood chopstick.
1997, based in my bathroom.
Since I was boy, I've suffered and faced a lots of situations and problems such as family problems, money problems, education problems.. that made me depressed.
So i always feel alone but I've inspired from that such as loneliness, depressive, violence and narcissism and also I've thought about the essential things about our world. Essence of our existence something philosophical thoughts. So all of things which I felt or thought from my life have been my inspirations for my works. I inspired from myself. It can be say like that. I know I also just little foolish living thing which want to know about essential of universe but if I going to live on like this I could be make a smile when I face the death.
Nowadays artist who called themselves 'artist', they think too easily about art and also they just use their works for the portfolio. They make their sketches, paintings, drawings even notes about their feelings or thoughts. So I feel they just do the art for their uni or something like own profits. I know and admire their passions but I want to say that passions is not for the essential of the art. Think about something new and creative things are also important to art but most nowadays artist focus on only that. That is just one side of the art...
And also I think as the art can't be educated from other people because we live on in each individual universe. So you can't feel same things as others. To sum up, professors have no right to evaluate young artists works.
I just want to show the world about essential of the art so even now I try to search that.
You who have suffered, focus on my works and just have deep breath and feel yourself
Thank for read

저는 유년기부터 현재까지 많은 세월은 아니었지만 많은 일들을 겪었고 많은 상황들에 직면했습니다. 거기서 부터 오는 많은 감정들과 타인에 대한 거부감 그리고 나르시시즘은 제 회화의 원천이 되어주고 있습니다. 인간의 본질과 우주의 본질을 알려고 하는 한낱 인간에 불과하지만 이 짓을 계속 한다면 죽는 순간에 미소를 띄을 수 있을 듯 합니다.
저는 한국의 입시미술제도에 회의를 느끼고 학업을 중단한 뒤 홀로 그림을 그려오고 있는 젊은 화가입니다. 예술에 있어서 가장 중요한 것은 회화의 순수함과 화가의 감정 그리고 생의 본질이라고 생각하며 그림을 그려오고 있습니다. 유학을 위해 런던에서 작업중이지만 서양 또한 체계화된 시스템 아래 생산되어지는 '예술'을 하는 것을 보았기 때문에 한국으로 돌아가 작은 스튜디오를 차리고 알바를 하며 작품활동을 계속 이어나갈 예정입니다. 예술을 학습시키고 학습되어지는 것이 아니라고 생각합니다. 화가의 열정과 회화에 대한 진심만이 예술의 본질이라고 생각합니다. 썩어버린 한국 예술계가 잘못되었다는 것을 증명하고 싶습니다.
제 그림을 보시는 분들은 그냥 있는 그대로 그림에서 나오는 감정을 느껴주셨으면 합니다.
