Kim Yong-Chul is a Korean painter who conveys the importance in preserving traditional values and cultural heritage. In 1970s (a period of national transformation from poverty to wealth) Kim worked on political projects to critique the depressing Korean society of the time using newspaper and television as media. From 1984 Kim returns to painting and employs Korean pictorial tradition capturing the scenery of vivid, fresh life which represents a departure from the previous political and gloomy perspective. He paints hearts to peonies, to flowers and birds, which are the symbols with distinct meanings in Korean traditional paintings. The use of acrylic, pastel, and glitter, heart motifs gives promising future and brighter prospect enlivened his attitude that work itself becomes a healing.
