About Artist

Kyungchul Shin studied B.F.A. Fine Art at the Daegu University and received ShinCho Art Awards in 2005. In 2013, he was selected as an artist of Daegu Art Factory and had an opportunity to have five times of solo exhibitions including the titled ‘Form’ in museums and galleries. Recently, he participated in the group exhibition called <Story of Zoo> held in the Pohang Museum of Steel Art and in NEO SANSU held in the Daegu Art Museum in 2014. His paintings are also collected by Korea Appraisal Board and the Museum of Daegu University.

He expresses the subjects of nature in big scale and abstract shapes. Composing the surface created out of one color and the rendering of pencils, the portrayed landscape of the painting seems to show the enlarged scenery of nature from the microscopic perspective.

Artist’s Note
Images caught in everyday life are instant, but they last in my memory. During the process, the images could be reconstituted over and over. My works are tracing the process in the form of art.
