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

Hi. I’m Yeono. I was born in Seoul, Korea and I am studying architecture in Busan. I wrote a book about the urban landscape of Korea and I am writing articles and pictures in travel magazines and architectural magazines. I work also as an architect.

2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

I like to observe the city where I live now. I like to express it with drawings. And I also like drawing people.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

Pen drawing mainly. I work there with watercolors or Photoshop. Pen is the simplest and easiest material, but there are many ways to express it. I am interested in creating new lines of feeling.

4. What is your artistic process like?

If I have inspiring landscapes, I draw them on the spot or take pictures and work in the studio. I enjoy the process of creating a new landscape through the hands.

5. Who and/or what inspires your work?

Inspiring my work is the landscape of the city where people have lived for a long time and the lives of the people who live there. It is somewhat consistent with another career interest, an architect.

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

I am also an architect. The painting I draw also expresses my view of the city. The cityscape is my eternal interest and I want to actively intervene in it. Painting is one of the best things I can do and I want to share the city we live in with everyone.

7. Where did you study?

I studied architecture at Dong-A University in Busan, Korea. But before that, I wanted to become a cartoonist.

8. Where do you see yourself in five years? Working in an agency?

Perhaps I will continue to paint and write while continuing to work on architecture. And I want to write a few more books.

9. What about in ten?

I’m going around the city with cameras and sketchbooks.

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

I want to draw pictures and write not only in Korea but also around the world. I want to share the interest and affection of the city with everyone.

11. Now, tell us a little more about you as a person: what is your favourite food?

All kinds of Korean food. I also like Italian food.

12. Favourite book?

I love history books. There is a lot of interest in how the people of the past lived. And I like books that show the artist’s deep insights. In recent years, novelist Kim Hoon’s “bicycle trip” remembers much.

13. Favourite genre of music?

I like music of almost all genres. I also like pop and rock music, Korean traditional music and classical music. Jazz is one of my favorite music of course

I listen to music, travel, and watch books. I had tango for about 10 years.

15. If you weren’t an artist, what would you be?

I think I would have been doing architectural work, and if not, I would be doing architectural, artistic, and cultural work
