An exhibition of Korean folk paintings is being held in the Dream Gallery of the Dream Forest, a park located in the northern area of Seoul.
Titled “Happiness-generating paintings: Korean minhwa,” the artworks feature mostly rabbits in order to celebrate the “Year of Rabbit”. The event will allow people to enjoy new interpretations of Korean folk paintings from contemporary perspectives.
Six artists display works which focus on “luck and happiness,” while harmonizing their creativity and artistic styles.
The artworks of Kang Yong-yeon are particularly eye-catching. His 100 different and unique works of art are displayed on the floor. They include miniature images of people wearing traditional and modern clothes along with diverse kinds of animals, a mixture apparently aimed at depicting a happy world where people and nature are in harmony.
The exhibition will be held through Feb. 20 and will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. with no admission fees.
