Artist Bio

My name is Il-Kwon Yoon and I am currently working as an artist. Through my artworks, I wish to provide a fresh perspective on life for modern-day individuals living within our busy and accelerated world. As an artist, I wish to attempt to express my thoughts in diverse ways without being restricted to any specific.

저는 현재 예술가로 활동하고 있는 윤일권입니다. 작가로서 작품을 통해 가속화된 세상 속 바쁘게 살아가는 현대인들에게 잠시나마 다른 관점으로 그들의 삶을 바라볼 수 있는 계기를 마련해 주고자 노력하고 있습니다. 또한 어떠한 장르에 국한되지 않고 다양하게 생각을 표현하고자 노력하고 있습니다.
