OH JOON KWON
I believe that creating art is a sort of the adventure. Sometimes it is fun and sometimes it is laborious, but to me, it is always an insatiable experience that is a part of who I am. The Focus of my style is the human figure with modern concept. Also I attempt to make a balance between realism and conceptualism as well.
