An artist, Osang Gwon holds his solo exhibition titled “New Structure and Relief” at Arario Gallery, Seoul till August 21st. He is a Korean artist who explores 3D sculpted works using photographs.

He takes detailed pictures of a person, from the head to toes, and glues a great number of photos together to make a life size sculpture. The final work seems realistic, but it gives various impressions that the work might seem true to life and yet different from the real thing, showing a great depth to human facial expression. From his work, you will experience a strong will that is totally different from simple photographs or statues.

This time, Gwon shows his new work series “New Structure” and “Relief.”
