Artist of the moment…….Yeondoo Jung

 

 

Yeondoo Jung is a contemporary Korean photographer renown for a series that featured his photographs based on children’s drawings.

Yeondoo Jung was born in Jinju, Korea in the year 1969. Jung is very well schooled having earned a B.F.A. from Seoul National University and a diploma in sculpture from Saint Martin College of Art in London, England. Jung also earned a M.F.A. from the University of London’s Goldsmith College.

In this clip from the University of Colorado at Boulder we view brief interview where the artist explains the connections he makes with imagination, art, and real life:

Jung was the recipient of the artist of the year award in 2007 from the Korean National Museum of Contemporary Art.

In this clip we visit a show featuring the artist’s Wonderland series. Photographic images based on children’s drawings that Jung collected when he served as an art teacher to kindergarten children. What a great creative idea!:

The artist is now based out of Seoul, South Korea.

What a wonderful artist who does a great job creating reality from imagination!
