Blum & Poe proudly presents a solo exhibition of works by the innovative Kwon Young-woo. As one of the founding figures of Dansaekhwa, the Korean monochrome painting movement of the 1970s, he uses creative and — some might say — unusual methods to make his pieces; scratching, ripping, dragging and sometimes soaking a canvas to emphasize his artistic vision.
Blum and Poe Tokyo is open by appointment only. Make a reservation to visit the galleries here.
