1. What’s your story? Where are you from?

Hi. I am currently a freelance illustrator living in Seoul, and draws everyday moments in our lives. My nickname is Vinyin, and my real name is Guyebin. My artwork includes album covers, cup holders, poster designs, etc. I work with various subjects and use various techniques, and I am currently working on a series of portraits depicting companion animals and their owners. And I plan to apply my drawings to multiple products.

2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

Iโ€™d like to paint pictures of repetitive routines of contemporary lives, which will serve as a reminder of the value of daily life.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

I like to draw live drawings, so I use pencils and charcoals. I use a variety of coloring materials and finish using Photoshop to express texture.

4. What is your artistic process like?

I do a free drawing with a variety of ingredients and repeat until Iโ€™m satisfied with the atmosphere and composition. I put a lot of effort into testing what patterns and colors should be used.

5. Who and/or what inspires your work?

Iโ€™m often inspired by the style and appearance of various people walking on the streets or in the subway. Visiting art exhibitions gives me a new sense and perspective.

6. What role does art play in your life? How does it change the way you view the world?

For me, painting is a conversation with others. I think it’s a good way to communicate the emotions and values that you can’t express in your language. When I see a flower, which most people donโ€™t pay much attention to, I tend to think about ways to represent its texture and atmosphere. It seems to me that everything gives me a certain kind of meaning.

7. Where did you study?

I majored in art design for children at college but I didn’t specialize in drawing pictures, so I attended an illustration academy after graduating from college.

Five years later, I’d like to publish more than one picture book, and I want to become a popular writer who has given private exhibitions.

10 years later, I’d like to work in a wider range of fields, such as large-scale installations of art. I would like to publish an essay with drawings I have worked on while traveling all over the world.

10. What do you hope to achieve with your art?

There’s a theme that I’ve got in my drawingโ€” the unfulfilled dream. It’s a testament to the desire to be able to reach the dream without just conforming to reality. Iโ€™d like my drawings to arouse empathy with a lot of people.
