And it's now time for our arts and culture segment, and we have Yim Yoonhee joining us live in the studio as always. Let's take a look at what she has for us today. Good afternoon.
Good afternoon. Today I have a few different artists who work with paint. This first artist took me off gaurd. Usually, when looking at art you see the final product, as intended by the artist, but this time, she shows you the whole entire process,... from inspiration to finished product. Let's take a look
[VIDEO START] It looks like a scene from a drama. Artist Nam Hong takes her work to the viewer, leading them behind the scenes as she creates her multi-faceted masterpieces. It's a one-of-a-kind performance... that includes dancing the tango, playing a Janggo, and painting, using various different methods. Her bright vivid colors decorate different surfaces, creating splattered works of art that create beauty in what would otherwise be interpretted as chaos.
[KOREAN-WOMAN] "My work always inspires hope and feelings of happiness. So many people stand in front of my drawings and become happy. As soon as I open my box of paints, I am filled with confidence and happiness."
Another artist who takes potential of chaos and turns it into something beautiful, is Chinese artist Yang Maoyuan . This is his first exhibition in Korea. He incorporates color blocking in small incriments, that from a distance, reveal a face. He uses this technique of color gradiation and color blocking in many of his works, even in rather interesting looking egg-shaped statues.
[CHINESE-MAN] "The sun is something we see and don't really have any feelings for. But it's always surrounding us, so by showing the relationship between color and temperature, you can see a different side."
And sometimes artists just want to capture the beauty of everyday life. These artists recreate scenes from around the world,... some recognizable by their landmarks, and others, well, they're just pleasant to look at.
[STUDIO] Those were some beautiful paintings. Now if I saw correctly, some of the works of the first artist looked to actually have images of what I thought was a butterfly.
Right. She actually uses her very unique technique to create butterflies and flowers. Sometimes, she intends for the images, and sometimes, she just creates and looks for the images after. All of these artists have their own style, but in the end, it's the viewers who get to interpret the work and take away from it.
And the works we saw today really do seem like they can cheer a person up.
