May 17, 2010

I’m very excited to introduce Kim Min Joo, a Korean artist.  We first saw her art work at http://www.artspace-hyun.co.kr and were immediately drawn to her subject matter as well as her style for this series of paintings.   Take a look, I think you’ll agree, she has a voice of her own and her artwork stands out in a crowded pool of incredible artists here in Korea.

Interview Status: We’re so very happy to provide our first official interview.  We’d like to take the time to thank Kim Min Joo for allowing us a glimpse into a the mind of an artist.

1) What are your favorite art pieces in this series and why?

” I like all of my pieces because I draw whenever I want to draw.
But I think I don’t have the piece which I really am satisfied.
I have to try more. ”

2) What are the themes of your art work?

No answer.

3) What inspired you to start these art works?

” One hot day, I was just looking at fish(without thinking) which were swimming in the water.   At that moment, I experienced that I couldn’t tell whether I am the Fish or the Fish is me.   I started to draw these series while I was feeling  like I was swimming  in the water and that I was the one  who broke through the boundary. ”

4) Please tell us about your personal background. Which city were you born? Which university did you attend? What was your major? Anything else you’d like to share with us?

8) Tell us how your designs are created from the beginning to the end. Is there a specific process you use?

” Most I use changJi which is A Korean paper.  This is thicker than Chinese drawing paper and I can put on more, so I can do expressions which are of high density.   At first, I do the process kind of coating called ” agyoposu  ” which means ‘glue catcher or glue gunner’   ->  I   build up coloring using flour color. ”
