About the artwork
The soft pastel colours and gentle forms of Dae Byu’s adorable subjects remind us of scenes from the fairytales and storybooks of our childhood, with their dreamlike aesthetics. The artist anthropomorphises these animals, depicting them as cognizant and interacting in ways that are seemingly humane in nature. Through his captivating imagery, Dae Byu brings deeper issues that have been considered secondary into the foreground, such as environmental degradation and it’s impact on living creatures around the world, leaving viewers with further thoughts to contemplate.
About the artist
Byu is an excellent fable teller. His continuous "animal-human" motif is a metaphorical interpretation of modern society, that brings subjects that have been ignored or considered secondary into the foreground, and by doing so he expands the meaning of his visual language into reality. The meaning in his works of art are not predetermined or interpreted in one way, but their potential interpretations become abundant as the artist deals with the proposed issues in an approach to allow various experiences and interpretations based on the viewer's perception. Therefore, his fables are not just illustrating the pressing environmental crisis, but are also softly reminding us that we should take care of every corner of our life, and uphold the memory of animals and fauna that have vanished at the hands of our human actions.
