He is regarded as having inherited the tradition of Korea’s conventional painting, and has made unequaled achievements in the aspect of modern western art – anti-abstract, abstract and dot abstract painting.
He left behind the well-known phrase that ‘the most Korean style is the most international style’. Many artists and painters still regard this as a golden rule in their creations.
As he said, Kim embraced mainstream culture while constantly striving to re-interpret it from the perspective of subjectivity. His paintings are somewhat like visual evidence with the intention of re-setting his ‘otherness’ as a subject. Such ‘subjectification of the other’ was neither simply going along with the atmosphere of the mainstream nor emphasizing the features of ‘otherness’. It is apparent that his subject matters and styles expose and reveal his attempts to combine the two cultures by raising the western mainstream culture within his own culture, the peripheral eastern art world. —- #탑 #たぷのIG#Topinstagram #TOPstagram #TOP #たぷさん #たぷ #TOPsart#TOPisart #최승현 #choiseunghyun #TTTOP #TTTOPArt #Bigbang #TTTOPsart #TTTOPsartcollection
