About the Artist

Suh Jeong Min is a Korean artist born in Seoul. He received his BFA in Painting from Chosun University and an MFA in Fine Arts from Kyeonggi University. Suh’s sculptural works are created using paper derived from the inner bark of the national Mulberry tree, a resilient pulp that has for centuries been used by Korean craftsman to create everything from decorative items to furniture. Employing a similar technique as those ancient masters, Suh’s Hanji compositions dwell upon the duality of existence and use of natural materials in contemporary culture.

Suh’s works have been exhibited at Palazzo Bembo, Venice Biennale in 2013 and the KEPCO Plaza Art Museum, as well as in numerous solo and group exhibitions both locally and abroad. He is the recipient of the Haengju Art Award in 2011 and 2005, and the Golden Award for Paper Art from the World Gallery of Drawing in 2013. His work forms part of the private collections of Hauser & Wirth Gallery, the Seoul Paper Museum and the Tween Tower Foundation, USA
