Pionara b. Seoul, South Korea

Pionara is a visual artist and photographer from South Korea. She has worked in various genres such as graphics, craft, and paintings. Rather than insisting on one genre, she developed an idea by choosing the best genre to express an idea. Lately, Pionara published her first photo book based on tropical plants. And Martin Parr wrote the review for the photo book. Creating a visual newness is her priority. Fauna and flora are the most inspiring themes to Pionara. She continues working on visually interpreting them in her way.
