Song Kwang-Ik

Song Kwang-Ik (b. 1950) was born in Korea and holds B.F.A. and Ed.A. degrees from Keimyung University in Daegu, Korea; and studied at Graduate Seminar Art College at Kyushu Sangyo University in Fukuoka, Japan. By applying or scattering paint on paper, Song’s artworks resemble a sense of nature and history. Hanji, or Korean paper, is made from the inner bark of paper mulberry; such material preserves the energy of wind and sunlight that engenders life. In Song’s artworks, every piece of hanji resonates with each other and thus creates unique vibrations between the gaps; while depending on one’s viewpoint and exhibition space, the multiple layers of hanji transform into infinite lines and planes. His works are recently exhibited in Tong-in Auction Gallery, Gallery Shilla, and Bongsan Cultural Centre; he also participated in many group exhibitions in Japan and Korea. In 2013, Song received the prestigious 27th Kumbok Cultural Prize from Kumbok Foundation.
