Minho Kwon

Based in Seoul, Korea, Minho Kwon is an artist focusing on drawing and new media, working across the boundary between illustration and fine art. Studying visual communication at Central Saint Martins and Royal College of Art, he went on to collaborate with Factum-Arte, Bompas & Parr, Jotta Studio and RA and won awards at Jerwood Drawing Prize, V&A Illustration Awards, and London Design Festival (Sustain RCA).

Minho’s work can be seen as a result of a combination of factors; the regimented structure that surrounded him whilst growing up in Seoul, his exposure to architecture from an early age and his interest in the economic history of Korea. The result is all encompassing, intricate to the point of resembling an architect’s blueprint, beautiful drawings that also have a powerful narrative behind them. 

Minho’s new work expands on his fascination with the ever encroaching western influence on Korean culture and economical development. Everyday buildings become his subject matter, as opposed to the immense mythical structures that his degree work focused on. His exquisite imagination brings the history and people of these buildings to life. Entire stories are recollected as the organic meets the mechanic and the nuts and bolts of our existence are literally revealed. Minho’s desire to communicate his beliefs through visual art has evolved and his new work embodies this deeper than ever before.
