the image of korea

i received an email this week with a large pdf file from korean designer mister han changkyu and although the mail was a little difficult to understand i believe he wanted to share his work with me, so here they are (my selection)

the posters all have rather poetic titles such as ‘be warm hearted’ and ‘the beauty of line’ and the aesthetic is so completely different to the one my western eyes are trained with that i find it very difficult to judge them at face value… the mix of colour, found objects (classical statues and ceramic pots etc.) and a lack of a large central ‘focal point’ in many of them is however very interesting, thanks for sharing…
