My Village Story
by Gallery Hyundai (Gangnam Space)
Location: Gallery Hyundai (Gangnam Space)
Artist(s): Young Sung HWANG
Date: 15 Apr - 2 May 2010

The works of Hwang Young-Sung contain his unique style: simplification of the form to turn a structural story into a humorous one. He has settled in Gwangju in Jeolla-Do (South West region of Korea) since the Korean War in 1950. He has been actively working both domestically and internationally and is widely known for the works that are indigenous and lyrical. The artist constantly strives to show change for diverse work of art and has been receiving a great deal of attention from European art world as well.

Hwang Young-Sung was born in Cheorwon of Gangwon Province, and studied painting at Chosun University in Gwangju. Ever since his completion of M.F.A. degree, he has been devoting himself in teaching at his alma mater. Hwang has been a recipient of numerous prestigious awards including, the Minister Prize (1973), Special Prize "Habib Gargour Award" at the 25th Monte Carlo International Painting Festival (1991), and Lee In-sung Art Prize Awards (2004). The artist has also served as a judge at the Grand Art Exhibition of Korea. His solo representations include Palazzo CRISPI (2006), Kunsthalle Dresden (2006), and Musee de’art moderns de Saint-Etienne Metropole (2007).

The exhibition will showcase the artist’s early works from the 1970s to his current works that focus on the village scenes. We hope this occasion would instigate more interest in the studies on Hwang Young-Sung's oeuvre to enrich both his artistic career and the Korean art world.
