Seungjin Yang

Seungjin Yang (b. 1986) grew up in a city located in far east side of Korea surrounded with mountains. He received a BA in metal art & design from Hongik University in Feb 2013. His inspirations come from ‘people’ whom he works with rather than other environmental or cultural issues, putting more weight on communicating with them through a variety of collaborating effort. Seungjin started with his simple interest in unexpected forms of balloons that are randomly defined at time of being blown. He has been using balloons as base material to produce solid crafts. Balloon is the easiest to manipulate the volume while it contains unexpectedness of being mass-y and solid opposite to assumptions on its original quality that is rather weak and soft. In his recent work, he is trying to extend through more playful colors and experimental forms. His recent projects include group exhibitions at Kumho Museum, Museum of Cultures Milano, DDP, Seoul Museum of Art, and international projects such as XXl Triennale di Milano, and Design Days Dubai. He currently lives and works in Seoul.
