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

I’m living in Seoul, Korea. Having a job as a kitchen designer, I got closer with furniture category, and then I began to get interested in creating a story of space with furnitures while having a job as a furniture coordinator. But now, I work as a freelance designer and I am preparing a long journey to see more of the world.

2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

I like the process of creating harmonious spaces where each piece of furniture and small props blend together. I especially love the warmth of plants and animals.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

I like the process of hand drawing because of its unique analog feeling.
But nowadays I’m working a lot with Procreator, an iPad app. Digital work seems to be a good idea to represent a wider variety of colors and textures.

4. What is your artistic process like?

I usually paint various items such as furniture, accessories, and plants I want to have. And when I come up with the space I want to express, I think about what items I want to combine and then place them all around in Photoshop. Then, if I feel that the picture is somehow lacking then I fill it up with more items whereas if the picture seems excessive, I subtract some items to make a harmonious picture.

5. Who and/or what inspires your work?

Well, I’m inspired by all the space. If I am inspired by a real space, I create a new space in my imagination, starting from thoughts such as ‘That furniture seems to fit more in another space’, ‘This space would be better if there is a plant’. When I am inspired by a virtual space, I try to actualize the spaces that come to my mind when I’m reading books or listening to music.

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

Art allows me to create my own spaces. It can express the spaces that were only imaginable in my mind. Previously, I just admired when I went to any space. But now I think of what elements have created this space and this atmosphere.

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

I want to make a space where many people can be happy. It is not a place to actually stay, but I hope that people can feel cozy and warmth when their eyes are “staying” in my paintings.
