04 : NAMGOONG WHAN BIOGRAPHY
Namgoong Whan was born in 1975 in Seoul. He currently lives in Paris. Before coming to France, Namgoong Whan first took a training course at the university of Seoul’s School of Fine Arts. He then settled down in Paris and studied at the ENSBA, where he obtained his diploma in 2003.

His drawings, products of patience and concentration, are brought to life through a thick brush full of ink.The moment paper and water collide, the ink spreads; following the artist’s fast and precise gesture.

Through a subtle use of blurs, Namgoong Whan succeeds in displaying a rare visual energy thus giving a spiritual dimension to his work.

« I use the brush, the ink, water, paper. They are organic materials which create energy. It runs through my body. I put ink on wet paper. This creates a lively reaction, the ink spreads and I control it. My work becomes a little ritual because I paint a picture or two with the rhythm of my daily breath. »
