Gaewon Jang, born in 1969, is an artist from South Korea, living and working in Seoul.
I discovered his artworks a few years ago and from the first minute I was completely blown away from his detailed painting technique and the poetry of his work.
The ceramic bowl, a frequent theme in his artworks, and part of the famous Korean ceramic history, acts as a time capsule containing the stories, situations, and emotions of the artist’s childhood.
Looking at the ceramic bowl, it feels as a real bowl with the tiny small irregularities and cracks, the old patina, the variety of colours.
For Gaewon Jang the Bowl Serie is an authentic and emotional story of home, tradition, heritage and hope.
Very recently he painted the Winter season, this edition is very rare, because for one reason or another, he rarely paints the Winter.
