ARTS - GWON OSANG

Korean rising star artist Osang Gwon (Kwon O-sang) is known for his work on eliminating the difference between the two medium; photography and sculpture by creating a hybrid between the two. He started garnering international fame with his amazing photo-collage sculptures series called “Deodorant Type”. It was a series of life-size sculptures made up of hundreds of photographs plastered on to Styrofoam bodies.

Popular culture plays a big part on his works. Gwon derives his theme mostly in glossy advertising and consumer culture. Gwon’s re-interprets the classical sculptural themes and techniques. His work can be found in numerous local and international exhibitions, as well as in publications that present and feature contemporary Korean art.

Just recently he collaborated with fashion label Wooyoungmi for their spring/summer 2013 campaign. Osang Gwon has created two impressive photo-collaged sculptures entitled “Aztec Pattern” and “Nuages Pattern”. The pieces depict two male models who sport vibrant suited pieces from the WOOYOUNGMI Spring/Summer 2013 menswear line.
