About the artwork

Lee Sangsoo (born 1983) is a South Korean artist. He studied sculpture at Dong-A University College of Arts and obtained his Masters degree at Hongik University Graduate School of SculptureMy dream was to be a painter. I enjoyed drawing in elementary school and art lessons in middle school. Naturally, after studying art in high school and university, I proceeded onto graduate school. However, the more I learnt about art, the more difficult it became. More often than not, when we study a subject on a deeper level, it is no longer as fun or enjoyable, and starts to feel like work. Although art used to be pleasurable and relieve my worries, it now became a source of stress. Art became my livelihood and I felt pressured to produce one of a kind works that no artist created before. The more I aged and learned, the more distance I felt between me and my art. I spent this period lost and wandering.



About the artist

Lee Sangsoo (born 1983) is a South Korean artist. He studied sculpture at Dong-A University College of Arts and obtained his Masters degree at Hongik University Graduate School of Sculpture. He enjoyed painting and drawing lessons in middle school, then later furthered his arts education formally in high school and graduate school. However, the more he learnt about art, it was no longer as fun or enjoyable and it became a tedious full time job. It was only through revisiting his childhood youthful works did he rediscover the brilliancy and innocence in childlike composition, carefree and pure, largely inspiring his faux naif style of three-dimensional sculpture today.
