Sangwoo Kim (South Korea, 1980) graduated in Arts and Crafts at the Chonnam National University, he decided to work on the traditional Korean terracotta ware – Onggi – constructing large vases that are typical of the area. After two years learning from working with master potters he decided to leave Korea. It was then when he was able to work on his own creative approach, adapting his technical skills to a greater degree of freedom. Sangwoo was greatly influenced by Europe, in 2007 he moved to Switzerland, and now currently resides and has his studio in France. The colourful works from his Seasons series, such as Spring, Summer, Winter, reveal the artist’s desire to create visual complexity, saturating the observers’ field of vision. Roundness, that amazed Sangwoo so much in the Onggi vases, explodes into a cloud of colours in this sensual, enticing works. Find ¨Spring¨ by Sangwoo Kim at www.side-gallery.com.
