1.Tell us what you do and your beginnings.
I am a sculptor working in Korea. My childhood dream was to be a painter because I really liked to draw. So I went to art college and majored in sculpture. Even now, making art is the most enjoyable thing for me.
2.What does your work aim to say?
Among Picasso’s works, there are works that draw animals with minimal lines. I received my first inspiration through those works, and I wanted to reproduce them in a space rather than a canvas.
3.Where do you find inspiration for your art?
I like to observe animals. Each animal has its own unique characteristics. It is a mystery of nature and a result of evolution. No matter how talented an artist, he cannot express the wonder of nature. I just want to work on it anew as my method of expression.
