Old Future, 2017 Acrylic on canvas 76 2/5 × 51 1/5 in 194 × 130 cm

The portrait and the landscape are among the most common and traditional genres in art history. Even though they might not be addressing new things, because of this history artists are still engaged with these subjects and use them to locate iconic elements that represent contemporary life.

This is because they perceive these subjects as being able to reflect the times whilst still being anchored in tradition. Despite differing levels of engagement and practice, when looking at the tendencies of works by significant artists who have played a leading role in the hegemony of contemporary art, they mostly transform and vary these typical elements according to the demands and form of their time.

There seems to be no better subject to address their stories than portraits and no better object to identify the conditions of living than landscapes. When considering symptoms such as the loss or confusion of identity which most contemporary people are sick of, the figure and landscape are not outdated subjects, and rather can be interpreted as some of the powerful and constant media in visual art. - Kho, Chung-Hwan (art critic)

He says, the series of make him experience the prospect of his creation by getting together nude and Han-bok (Korean dress).

His works are derived from original idea which is putting Korean dress on western women and brings out a sense of beauty using air brushing technique.

By harmonizing the structure of opposition between the East and the West, traditional and contemporary, body and soul, and the Eastern culture and the Western culture, new fascination of the beauty of human body could be created.

"Allora l'Eterno Dio formo' l'uomo dalla polvere della terra, gli soffio' nella narici un alito di vita, e l'uomo divenne un'anima vivente" 7; 2 Genesi

Tutto cio che ha in se' un soffio di vita hanno una propria energia. noi la prendiamo e trasformandola, ne creiamo una nuova. Il mio lavoro vuole rappresentare l'energia invisiblie presente in questo fenomeno, che si attua tramite un processo perpetuo e circolare di generazione e scissione.
