2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

I’m painting stories. A big topic is β€˜comfort’. The inspiration of painting is everything I encounter in my everyday life and I mix it with my imagination. In order to express the picture in a fantasy and warm way, I work with care about the composition of colors and pictures.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

Previously, colored pencils were mainly used. These days, I’m using saiTool and Photoshop. Color pencils also have their own feelings, and digital work has many advantages, so it is a good choice depending on the situation.

4. What is your artistic process like?

Take note of the scenes that come up and select them to draw a picture. First, try to match the colors and set the mood of the picture. After that, I continue to edit and draw until I get close to the imagination.

5. Who and/or what inspires your work?

The beginning of the painting is the β€œfeeling” I felt. Emotions are heavily influenced by songs, movies, and novels. I recombine these feelings in my own way and express them in one scene. Sometimes a scene comes up at one time, and sometimes several sketches are combined. I want to be inspired in many places.

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

For me, art is knowing who I am. Because I focus on my emotions and draw, I can see how I accept it in various situations. After expressing complex emotions that are difficult to express in words, I feel regretful. That drawing is a great comfort to me. So for me, art is three things: facing, expressing and comforting.

I want to be a more harmonious person than now. Live well-coordinated for work, study, and relaxation

I hope you have the passion and steadfastness to continue to challenge your goals.

9. What about in ten?

10 years later! I wish I had a stable life as an illustration writer and a painting therapist.

Make a picture book, exhibit, consult, and live busy, right?

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

I want a lot of people to see my paintings and feel some emotions.

To do that, I’ll paint it with emotion. I plan to participate in an illustration event so that many people can see my drawings. Also, we are currently preparing picture books.

I’m thinking a lot about how to make my illustration public.

I like Potato pancakes, and rice noodles.

12. Favourite book?

I like Chosun Hee’s ‘Modern Red Bean Rat Exhibition’. It is a book written by imagining the behind-the-scenes stories of the main characters in Korean fairy tales. This is a book that I continue to read because I love the strangeness that comes from familiar stories.
