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

Hi, I’m HYONNA(nickname) living in Seoul, Korea.
Since I was a little girl, I was into art and design.
That’s when I started to do my works.
After I graduated from Univ. I worked in a company as a designer.
But, not long after, I quit.

2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

Most of my works are colorful. but,
the story in it is not so fancy as it looks.
My work doesn’t contain any positive message.
It’s full of negative feelings.
These days I’m into notion β€˜negative’.
What I’m doing is rewriting the notion β€˜negative’ in my own style.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

I like to work with β€˜Photoshop’ and β€˜Illustrator’.
Photoshop makes it easier to make variable and colorful effects.
Whereas Illustrator is good at making simple objects.

4. What is your artistic process like?

First, I start with looking back what happened to me. In that,
I find negative feelings in it, then I sketch the image in my head.
Next, I search for the source that suits my image. When I find the source, that’s when I start my work.

7. Where did you study?

When I was 12,
I saw pretty images on internet.
Somehow I knew those images were made by photoshop.
At that time, photoshop was not common in Korea, so, I had to study by own.
Of course the skills too.
When I was 19, I had chance to learn pure arts.
And till now that helps me a lot when I’m doing my work.
