Veteran artist Je Jung-ja shows the infinite potential of beoseon through modern art
We sit down with veteran artist Je Jung-ja, who expresses the joys and sorrows of Korean people, as well as the Korean traditional sentiments and beauty through the lines and curves of her art pieces.
She has been very active for the past five decades, so learn about her works from her early days. In addition, she has been active with pieces which have the motif of beoseon, the traditional Korean socks for 20-something years since 2000. Enjoy her stories and learn how beoseon has sublimated into modern art on "The INNERview."
Before being an artist, she is a Korean woman and Je Jung-ja states that she naturally came upon the beoseon while searching for her identity.
In the early days, her mental world was filled with ink-and-wash paintings and she created her art world with the lively brush strokes of calligraphy. She is now ready to tell the world about her art pieces which have the motif of beoseon.
Je Jung-ja is a peerless modern artist who has expressed the Korean identity through her works for 50-something years. Fall in love with her passion and artistic spirit on "The INNERview."
