Oh’s practice is intentionally entertaining, celebrating the act of playfulness as essential to sustaining serious creativity. Seung Yul Oh works fulltime as an artist and is occasionally called on by Auckland University's Elam School of Fine Arts to work with students. Internationally Seung Yul has embarked upon a new phase of his career aimed at taking his art to a wider international audience and the rapidly expanding Asia Pacific region. His work is represented in the collection of the Museum of New Zealand—Te Papa Tongarewa in Wellington.
