Today is my father's 90th Birthday! I am so thankful that he taught me about faith, poetry, patience, perseverance, intellectual curiosity, natural piety and love.

The portrait of my father, Dae Kun,
I tried to show my father, a scholar of English literature, also explored the areas of Chinese philosophy, and aesthetics.
Since he embodies the concept of the “thinker” and is on a perpetual quest for knowledge, I wanted to imbue the work with a sense of dignity and nobility. To do this, I used gold threads to traverse the work diagonally and applied a dab of paint to the areas where the threats intersected.
