THE WIND FROM SEOUL

Sangchul Won is an acclaimed artist in Korea, with his unique technique and distinctive style. He has been exhibiting his works for a few years now in arts fairs in Ankara and Istanbul. The originality of his compositions, his different style and fame ensure that his paintings are always in demand by buyers. Indeed, all of Won's works exhibited at the fair in Ankara last year were sold.

Although Won's work initially appear as a riot of colours that disturb the eye, a close examination of the composition reveals captivating and harmonious lines and colours among complex, intertwined figures. The works, which are only complete following a long and laborious process, generally depict flowers, various food and drink. Regarding the technique he uses to create his work, Wong has the following to say: "The first step is the application of a thick layer of plaster on the drawing board. Once the plaster is dry I sketch for the figures and later I dig into the fragments with a sort of chisel to bring out the patterns for the figures. In the next stage I attach the traditional Korean paper handmade from mulberry trees on the outlines and after a couple of rounds of priming I begin drawing and painting."

Won answers a question on what motivates his art as follows: "I feel lots of emotions everyday, not getting off the bonds of the rea) life, spending times suffering from this or that thing, and existing... Night, loneliness, drinking and just one more another day... Too routine to feel my own meaning. Emotions of daily life, I tried to express my life and my emotions of night I am living with. I am I, and the feelings I felt are just for mine. Different from anybody and could not be same. It's like putting them in the picture diary like a child playing..."
