Artist statement
In the past he created new architectural designs and structures for many years as an architect in Korea. He feels that his ability was passed on from his father who had excellent hand skills as a Korean traditional fashion designer. From
this family heritage, he has always been writing, drawing, and producing work. Since 2014 he has been training
as a jeweller-metal artist. He is keenly interested in the aesthetic of hollowware, and story-telling jewellery. In this
work he tries to capture the soul of the work, reflecting the human experience. he continues to create new stories,
capturing the essence of humanity, and expressing that into his work.
