I majored in sculpture. Perhaps that's why I'm focusing on three-dimensional expressions. I am a visual artist who deals with installation, media (video), and painting. In fact, I think that's what's happening in the expression of the work because it's influenced a lot by pop art, street art, and culture. I'm thinking about the uncertain situation of being real. In other words, I'm focusing on the question of what the image is interpreted as and whether it's real. Especially, I usually work with a medium called letter, because the letter itself is a meaning and an image. So, a work that combines the formative nature, symbolism, and allegorical character of letters is being presented. But more than these expressive methods, in the end, what I focus on is not finding the answer to what it means, but that one image has a variety of meanings, and it is presented in a variety of ways by individual experiences and memories. We mainly work on the image of language or letters and also show art using objects through video or installation art.
