04 : CHUN KWANG YOUNG BIOGRAPHY
Born in 1944 in Hongchun, South Korea. He lives and works in Gyunggi.

In the 70s, during his many trips to the United States, Chun was inspired by the movement of Abstract Expressionism. A protagonist of « Action painting » and « Colorfield painting », he began his career by using colors and forms thus developing the pictorial chaos in his paintings.

In 1995 Chun broke aside from convention and abandoned his brush and canvas in favour of the traditional Korean mulberry paper (Hanji) used generally for writing and packaging of drugs or food.

His striking textured canvases and monumental organic sculptures give life to imaginary landscapes in colors and volume, therefore creating an infinite abstract space.

This assembling of individually wrapped hand-cut polystyrene triangles comprising ancient Korean or Chinese texts withholds several elements of the collective memory. It’s in these small triangles that reside all the power of his work "AGGREGATION".
According to Chun Kwang Young, these Aggregations are the windows reflecting his vision of humanity.

Chun Kwang Young has been rewarded by numerous distinctions, has exposed worldwide and is present in numerous and important public and private collections.
