Kang Jun Young,1979 Born in Seoul, Korea holds a bachelor and masters degree in Ceramics from Hong-Ik University’, the most prestigious art school in Korea. Even during his studies as a student, he already participated in group exhibitions and held his first solo exhibition on 2006. Since then, he regularly took part in various art fairs in Korea and in other major art markets like US, Hong Kong, China and Singapore. His works are owned by the Korea National Assembly Building and Korea Racing Authority, and he participated in artist residency programs in both Korean and Beijing in 2011 and 2012. In 2015, he also participated in London Art Fair, organized by Saatchi Gallery.
Kang’s work possesses an interesting element of lyrical story telling. Having lived overseas as a student apart from the rest of the family, he was immersed in a mixture of various cultures, of which hip hop music was his favourite. His works are heavily influenced by hip hop music and street culture. In terms of story, ‘Romantic Love’ is the theme that runs across all of his works, sometimes loud and clear, sometimes in a whisper. As a ceramist by education, he values the sense of using his hands to feel the materials.
