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

Hello. I’m Artist Yoo Ji Aun from Korea working in the areas of drawing, writing, and video making. I’m hoping that from every work I do β€œa good influence” can come out of it.

2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

I mainly work around with tranquil colors. Rather than a perfectly shaped end product, I prefer the roughness of a hand drawing. I get much subject matter from nature and everyday life and interpret those in my own way to work on. I like the white blanks of a paper, so I tend to utilize that a lot. It feels neat and tidy.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

I try to use many materials. The material I use the most is watercolor. It’s really attractive in that various expressions can be done according to how much water you mix it with. If you express together with color pencils, the harmony between water materials and dry materials is really interesting, so I mostly use them together. I really like the sound it makes when I fill the color thoroughly with a color pencil.

4. What is your artistic process like?

Honestly, I’m the type of person to wait for most of the time. I think creation takes energy to embody something. I wait for that energy to accumulate. I do a lot in the meantime. I travel, listen to music, and watch films. These days I work on most of my projects not just putting out a singular piece that’s the end of itself, but taking on the method of continuing an overall storytelling where a number of pieces are arranged in series. So I keep thinking about that storytelling endlessly, and take notes whenever I can. What’s fascinating is that almost all my ideas come from ordinary life. While taking a bus or just walking on the street. I take notes of things that just come to my mind and when those gradually build up to form an outline then I begin to work. Because I started out with everything already drawn in my mind, in most cases the work itself ends quickly. Usually, I pick the colors first, and after setting up the mood, I render the shape.

5. Who and/or what inspires your work?

I get huge inspiration from space. Ever since I was little, I was very certain about my space and the pertaining boundaries. Maybe that’s why I get so affected by space even when I’m working. I feel extremely free in spaces that make you feel good just by looking at it, especially places surrounded by nature. This freedom leads right to inspiration, and conjures up something in me that wants to be portrayed. The other one is music. Music transcends time and space and transports me to a completely different world. Or it makes me become a different person. I think someone else’s creative work can also be a big inspiration and stimulation. Last is the nature itself. The sunlight blazing down, the wind flowing by and the green tree leaves swaying to that wind. When I’m gazing up at the clear sky, beyond what my body feels, I think something else comes to my heart. I think it’s a creation by the magnificent Creator.

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

It progresses to something that sets me free. Also, I think it kind of defines the person that β€œI” am. It’s the driving force that makes me ponder and delve into what sort of person I want to become through this work and what sort of life I want to live, and it’s that thing which constructs my world, and develops me. It allows me to become a better person, and to view life in a completely different perspective. In fact, to me, life is β€œA travel for about 100 years.” When you’re traveling, you don’t worry about how to live, what job to get, or how to make money. I want to live like that.

7. Where did you study?

I majored in video and film at Hongik University. I studied the fine arts then went into Design College, but I think it was a good decision to choose video. I learned to see the world in a wider vision.

I can’t guess, but I hope I’m with my family, and my child that will happen someday. My little wish is that even in those times, it’s a free environment where I can always fly off to a journey somewhere if I make up my mind to.

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

I would like every one of my work to approach a greater number of people as a good influence, as consolation, and as comfort. I sometimes think about what will be at the end of this path, and it’s not definite, but what’s apparent is that it’s becoming more vivid as time goes by. And letting everyone discover his or her own world at possession. I want to let people know they’re valuable not because they do certain things, but because of their existence itself. Moreover, I want to be able to help the socially disadvantaged, and the children in the Third World. Just like my environment wasn’t my choice, their environments weren’t their choices to make. I want to genuinely understand and help their sufferings.

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

I like all foods that have an egg in it. Especially soft-boiled! Even in my fridge at home, egg is the one thing that’s always filled up.

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

A traveler. Although the reason I can’t stay in one place may be for freedom or because of anxiety. Since it’s always a joy to go someplace new. I want to be a person who can be happy just for the existence itself during all the process.
