Galerie Pici Seoul

Galerie Pici Seoul is thrilled to present “SangHo Byun: I Love New York,” an exhibition running from December 29th, 2023 to January 11th, 2024. This showcase offers a captivating exploration of SangHo Byun’s recent paintings, where vibrant colors, captivating imagery, and rich symbolism converge to reveal a thoughtful connection to the contemporary human experience.

Byun’s paintings are characterized by his seamless navigation between hyperrealism and abstraction, creating a distinctive style. Drawing inspiration from everyday life and contemporary themes, his works resonate with profound relevance, evoking narratives reminiscent of cherished picture book illustrations, inviting viewers into a world of imagination and storytelling.

By incorporating elements of pop art, bold color palettes, and playful visual cues such as doodlings and symbolic expressions like apples and animals, Byun infuses his paintings with energy and dynamism, capturing the essence of modern visual stimulation. Each painting in the exhibition shows Byun’s special way of seeing things and how much he loves expressing himself through art. When you look at his paintings, it feels like you’re entering a world where what’s real mixes with what’s imagined, taking you on a journey to explore and discover new things through art.

SangHo Byun (b. 1970) hails from Jinju, nestled in the picturesque landscapes of South Gyeongsang Province, renowned for its rich cultural heritage. Graduating from Gyeongsang National University’s Department of Art Education, Byun pursued his master’s degree in Western Painting at Changwon University. This solo exhibition at Galerie PICI marks his debut with the gallery, having previously exhibited in cities like Seoul, Daegu, and Changwon, along with participating in various group exhibitions and art fairs.
