Schermafbeelding 2017-09-03 om 10.21.20

It is now almost 2 years ago that i acquired a beautiful Korean painting at auction by Jungwook Kim for our collection, but beside the origins and original purchase place of the painting / Gallery Skape in Seoul and its original purchase price, it is impossible for me to find more information on the painting or the artist. My question is …who can help?

I need the following information.

  • A complete biography of Jungwook Kim
  • has anybody photographs of this artist and if so at work in the studio?
  • have there been museum or gallery presentations in Europe or US beside the Berlin and Istanbul ones?
  • Are there US or European museums that collect work by this artist

Any help and information is appreciated. Thank you….

Jungwook Kim……and Korean Art

jungwook-werkkamer

A few months ago i had the fortune to have the winning bid in auction for a large Jungwook Kim painting. ( see the above picture of my office)

Since,  i have been trying to find publications on this artist….so far none. This painting was originally sold at the Skape gallery in Seoul, who now know of its present whereabouts, but i am still looking for books, folders and information on this wonderful work of art.

Who can help?……….

 

It is not the first time i notice that there is a strong and lively artists mouvement in Korea. Lately at another auction i noticed another great work by Kang-Ik-Joong. An artist i did not know of either. But what a wonderful works he makes. becoming rather expensive now, but many of these artists must be on the verge of their international breakthrough. Will Korea become to new “China”for art collectors?
