THE ORIGINAL OF THIS SERIES ARE NOT FOR SALE as it is part of a Private Collection. I did this series for SS501's members, who own the original paintings, as a way to express my gratitude for their talent and kindness that inspired me to move to Korea.Originals: Acrylics on canvas.

Currently Selling: Signed Limited Edition Hand-embellished Giclee Print (195) 10" x 8" (20cm x 25cm)

Seriously these guys have to find a way to get back together, 5 united as 1 as it all started.

Korea


Korean Rain


Music Car - Coleslaw's 친구

KHR (돈)


J

This series was inspired by people that I met in Korea. Many adventures and stories to tell in pictures.

Rain: This painting was done as a gift for
김수룡 (Kim Soo Ryong), one of SBS's dramas directors who kindly allowed me to visit his drama set during the filming of 초혼 (First Marriage). My first encounter with him took place on the eve of 추석 (Chuseok) 2010, on a very very raining day, hence the inspiration for the painting.

Music Car - Coleslaw's 친구: A very peculiar man (my friend keeps calling him 'psycho' and he doesn't seem to mind it at all) who loves to sing-a-long very loud music whilst driving.

KHR (
): Without a doubt one of my best and the first friend I ever had in Seoul. To say thanks for always taking great care of me, one day I asked 혜림 if she wanted a painting and most important, of what subject. The answer I got was '' (money) so I decided to paint for her my very own banknote which was also inspired by my friend's aura colours and energy.

J: Perhaps one of the guys with the most complex personality, big ego, and most important peculiar aura I ever met in my life. Still, what an interesting period was that one (P.S. J, I still want my original painting back btw, you promise you would do so...!!!)

The Solstice Series


Summer Solstice





Winter Solstice



Available to buy: Signed Limited Edition Hand Embellished Giclée Print (195) 12" x 10" (30cm x 25cm). Originals: Acrylics on fabric.
This diptych was one of my first works created in Cambridge. Back then I was still strongly inspired by the Italian Renaissance art which has heavily influenced my growth as an artist. In particularly with these pieces I was trying to replicate the feeling of a Renaissance tapestry. The trees symbolise life and death as they manifest themselves in the eternal cycle of the seasons.

The Murder Machine Series


Murder Machine I





Murder Machine II





Murder Machine III


Available to buy: Signed Limited Edition Hand Embellished Giclée Print (250) 12" x 10" (30cm x 25cm). Originals: Acrylics on canvas.

This series was inspired by one of the Black Parade concerts, on the night of 22nd November of a life time ago. My aim was to depict the dark side of the human soul and the Murder Machine mentioned in the song. I never got to create the Cog in the Murder Machine...perhaps one day I will do it.

Murder Machine I, II and III.

The World Trilogy


Angel




Mankind


Demons

Available to buy: Signed Limited Edition Hand Embellished Giclée Print (195) 12" x 10" (30cm x 25cm). Originals: Acrylics on canvas.

This series is dedicated to the human nature and was inspired by the amazing band called Your Favorite Enemies and, of course, by the YFE family.


Because it was impossible for me to express my love for them in words, I decided to paint it. YFE are among the few really good people I have met in my life. If there were more like them in the world, the world would be a better place.

This series is also the prequel of the most recent Thoughts Series - Eternal Life (영생) featured in the Gallery Golmok Exhibition in Seoul. See related March 2011 blog entry.

The Gods Series

God: Zeus



Gods: Helios





Gods: Artemis





God: Hades





God: Dionysius





God: Aphrodite





Available to buy: Signed Limited Edition Hand Embellished Giclée Print (250) 12" x 10" (30cm x 25cm). Original: Acrylics on fabric.

This series was inspired by Greek Mythology, one of my first loves and the reason why I decided to become an archaeologist. I always thought of the Gods as immortal trees hence the idea of paint them as such. The decision to use gold and silver for the goddess was my attempt to add a touch of beauty to the female trees, in particular to Aphrodite whose tree should represent the goddess of beauty (I tried to portrait her by adding a peacock effect to the foliage)

The Elements Series


Element: Fire




Element: Earth





Element: Water




Element: Air


Available to buy: signed Limited Edition Hand Embellished Giclée Print (250) 12" x 10" (30cm x 25cm). Originals: Acrylics on canvas.

This series was inspired by the natural world and its four element elements, following the Greek philosophy concept that these represent the material of our universe. I tried to depict the spirit of each element on canvas.
