The Work of Hyunjin Lee

Erotica // Tuesday, July 10, 2012
Hyunjin Lee is an illustrator, painter and digital artist based in Seoul, Korea, where the artist has already had three solo exhibitions. Lee has also participated in numerous group exhibitions and art fairs in China, Japan and Taiwán. With both subtle and colorful pieces, mixed with eroticism and innocence, we love Lee's explanation for the work: "I do not do this for world peace. It is a job for miss world. Just enjoy my little stories in every piece." World peace would be way too much to ask.

The Paintings of Korea's Kwon Kyung-yup

Juxtapoz // Sunday, July 08, 2012
We love the flat, white, realistic paintings of Korean-painter, Kwon Kyung-yup. Each female painted has an isolated, frozen glance, which makes them to appear to almost be facades in a dream. The detail in which the painter uses the color white is quite stunning. 

The World's Tallest LEGO Tower

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 16, 2012
They even let the Danish Crown Price Frederik place one of the last blocks on the tower, to honor the 80th Anniversary of the famed toy company, LEGO. In Seoul, Korea, in front of the Olympic Stadium, 4,000 children and over 500,000 LEGO blocks came together to create, at least for the time being, the tallest LEGO tower ever constructed at 105 feet. If this were done in America, after about 3-feet the kids would have been bored.

Lips, Lips, and more Lips by Kim Sung Jin

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 16, 2012
Haruki Murakami has a thing for ears. In each of his novels, you get a girl, pulling her hair back, revealing some an ear that has the lead character on notice. Kim Sung Jin has a thing for lips. How do we know? We just spent nearly an hour looking at hundreds of photorealistic lips painted dramatically by the Korean artist.

Starry Night Installations in Nature by Lee Eunyeol

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 03, 2012
In what reminds us of a featured artist on the site last year, Barry Underwood, we really love these light installations in nature by Lee Eunyeol. Where the Korean photographer/installation artist places the lights makes you look at the ground in a different way, and appears as if the night sky has just fallen to the ground from outer space.

Skirt Flirt "Doubie Vision" by Ho Ryon Lee

Juxtapoz // Sunday, April 01, 2012
Maybe it's our lingering jetlag in London, but these realistic, blurred motion paintings by Ho Ryon Lee are messing with our heads this morning. A little tease, a nice recreation of a dream state from the Seoul, Korea-based artist.

The Work of Wonman Kim

Juxtapoz // Friday, March 16, 2012
Self-taught artist Wonman Kim's startling versatility allows him to navigate multiple creative fields with ease and confidence, creating remarkably dynamic and memorable work as a graphic designer, t-shirt designer, toy designer, illustrator, and concept artist. "I hope to please everybody who sees my illustrations," says South Korea-based Kim. "Illustration is a tool to open the window of an artist's mind."

Not the country named Korea

Graffiti // Friday, March 02, 2012
This piece by Korea has some great negative space and movement happening.  Plus a dippy bonus.

Chain Sculptures by Seo Young Deok

Juxtapoz // Friday, November 25, 2011
Using welded metal chains, Korean artist Seo Young Deok creates these incredible chain sculptures of human body formations and nudes. Deok just held a solo exhibition, Dystopia, at the INSA/Arko Art Centre in Seoul.
