This LTS spot by Zes, Korea, and Futur is like a big chunky slab of uncut meat. No marinating, no extra seasoning, just the meat.

Being big fans, we have posted the work of Seungyea Park (aka Spunky Zoe) before. Born and raised in Seol, Korea, Park addresses the topic of 'Monstrousness' caused by fear in our inner world. She says, "Monsters are everywhere. At the moment 'I' within me faces the 'I' outside of me they try to avoid, conceal, and deny each other, considering the other a monster."

We are really enjoying Korean artist Jiyen Lee's collages of people ascending and descending staircases. The Escher-like collages are mesmerizing and infinite, with no identifiable beginning or end.

A nice collection of fashion-inspired illustrations from South Korean artist So Hyeon Kim that caught our attention this morning. A little addition of fairy tale elements gives the work a bit more context. There is a ton of work on Kim's site, so we have been passing the time this morning checking out all the works...

So Youn Lee was born and raised in South Korea, and moved to the United States in 2008 to attend the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Lee’s focus and interest is primarily Surrealism and human behavior, exploring the individual balance between presence and absence, believing that art should deliver unique experiences to the audience that alters their perceptions of the world and of life.

A stunning series of wood sculptures (more like wood reformations and morphings) by Korean sculptor Jaeyho Lee. We like to think that these just magically appear in the woods, and an unsuspecting hiker just comes across them and begins to believe in UFOs. But alas, Lee is behind the work, and both in gallery and in nature, they are awe-inspiring.
