Covid-19 made it almost impossible to travel abroad, causing most Koreans to travel locally. Therefore, many Koreans visit Jeju Island, expecting to see something exotic though. These photos were taken at an exhibition in Jeju Island that projects paintings of 'Van Gogh' on the empty space.  
With white masks, people's faces become anonymous and white screens for projection. Despite the colorful and exotic scenery around, looking at photographs taken, I feel like the scenes are a bit hilarious and people look tired; Some of them seem lonely and others seem to be acting on a stage. They go to different places through multimedia, but they are still stuck in one place. It would be a scene where the desire to leave and the frustration that cannot do so collide.

Drawing with cosmetics for 'Dazed'
I was commissioned by Fashion magazine 'Dazed and confused' Korea to paint a picture with cosmetic products. 'Dazed' povided me with makeup products of S/S season such as eyeliner, rouge and eyeshadow. It was highly enjoyable project to me in that I was able to draw something with such a soft texture and delicate . vivid colors of cosmetics.

sometimes, I imagine normal things acting totally different way from a stereotype. This image is one of that kind of my imagination. Even though people think that butterfly only flies, they love to walk with wings whenever people don't see them.
