Seung-Woo Hwang – Korea

Seung-Woo Hwang

Hwang is a graduate of the Carrara Academia Belle Arte, Italy, where this Korean born artist still resides today.  Hwang has a very high profile internationally, and has participated in over 30
symposia worldwide.
His themes often include paper and the related culture focused on the importance of communication and the accumulation of knowledge.

His highly recognisable style can be seen in a number of significant public commissions in Bahrain, Damascus, Korea, Australia, Norway, Spain and the UAE.

 

“Papers are very important in our lives because not only do they serve as the material we use in our everyday activities,  but they also serve as a kind of ‘hidden power’ bearing the language that we use.”
