Hi There,

I have an inquiry which I think should be interesting, and not too hard.

I would like to know who are some very well respected and well known
Artists (painters) in Korea.

These would be people who are alive today and popular.

I will pay $10 for the first artist and $2 for each additional artist
up to 5, paid in the form of a tip (exceptional answers will attract
an additional tip on top of this).

Hello Aaronqwerty,

Cho Duck-Hyun

known artists. His work has a sophisticated understanding of the
formal nature of art and he has a shrewd comprehension of art history
and cultural hegemony.?

Contemporary Art in Asia: Traditions, Tensions

"In 1997 the Asia Society organized and presented a large traveling
exhibition that began in New York , traveled to Canada and then to
Asia. The name of the exhibition, as the name of this book, was
documentation of what must have been an extraordinary show in this
sumptious, highly informed book/catalogue. The art displayed is from
India, Indonesia, the Philippines, South Korea, and Thailand. The
curatorial thread is one of demonstrating how contemporary work in
these very different countries is loosely united in each artist's use
of traditional imagery to address contemporary tensions - gender,
sexual, political, national, religious, and philosophical. The book
has beautifully concise and erudite essays by writers from each of the
cultures and there has rarely been a selection of commentators so well
selected. Then come the visuals and the treats in store for those who
do not know Asian art are endless. Some of the artists are extremely
well known: Cho Duck Hyun and Kim Ho-Suk from South Korea,?
