We’re obsessed with Playvakki’s bright, bold art. The duo, Moki and Vakki, are based out of Seoul and have installed some incredible urban and street art pieces. Their website showcases the diversity of their projects, which include commercial installations and animated video art pieces.

Korean artist Jee Young Lee creates beautiful dreamscapes in her Seoul studio space. Constructing every last detail by hand, she perfectly composes everything for a photograph, a self portrait of sorts that gives us insight into her vibrant imagination.

We are just loving this series of black and white photos from Seoul, South Korea's RangBang, aka Sanghyeok Bang. Just a fantastic sense of light and shadows, sexual and voyeurtistc black and whites that hypnotize you as you gaze and wander through the series.

One of the cleanest and most precise artists painting the U.S. streets has to be Atlanta’s own Sever. Over the last few years, the artists has branched outside of lettering, gracing the ATL and beyond with a number of site-specific murals (You remember his controversial “Death of Street Art” mural in Detroit). The artists recently updated his site with some work created in Seoul, Korea and an excellent piece painted on the exterior of the Atlanta Prison Farm.

Seoul-based Korean artist Seokmin Ko's photographic series The Square evokes both a peaceful sense of being at one with the world around us and a feeling of being lost. Addressing ideas of normalcy and identity, the artist holds up a giant mirror to reflect his surroundings and camouflage himself from the viewer...

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."

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.

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.

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.
