In 2023, I obtained my doctoral degree from the Department of Design at Seoul National University. My research, titled 'A Study of Illustrations on the Modern Transformation of Genre Paintings: Focusing on Shin Yun-bok's Hyewonjeonshincheop,' delved into the enigmatic works of Shin Yun-bok, a pivotal figure in the flourishing of late Joseon-era genre paintings. I meticulously selected 15 pieces from his national treasure No. 135, 'Hyewonjeonshincheop,' and reinterpreted them through a contemporary lens.
My artworks were meticulously crafted using a handmade, limited-edition silk-screen technique. They were presented alongside a cruciform artist bookcase, adding an extra layer of aesthetic allure to the exhibition
