JUNYOUNG KANG

KANG JUN YOUNG

The artwork by artist, Junyoung Kang, is a mix of energy and turbulence, giving us the feeling of looking at graffiti. His colorful style and color ranges were influenced by the street pop culture during his childhood in Australia. His first solo exhibition was held in 2006 after he was awarded the grand prize from Icheon International Ceramic Expo that same year. He has been active in the global art scene, particularly in Europe and Asia. The main theme of his art is “Family Love”. He expresses this theme through modern languages and different mediums, covering not only ceramics, but also paint, found objects, mixed media, etc
