Lie Sang-Bong exhibits in London

Apr 15, 2009

The Korean Cultural Centre UK in London has invited four artists to present their vision of Hangul: Korean writing. Amongst them is fashion designer Lie Sang-Bong, who has often used ancestral characters in his work.

Alongside the designer will be the photographer Chun Kyung-Woo, calligrapher Kim Jong-Won and typographist/designer Ahn Sang-Soo.

Lie Sang-Bon, who is greatly attached to his Korean roots, has often found the Hangul to be a source of inspiration for his fashion collections. The star designer in his country, Lie Sang-Bong has shown his work on the catwalks of Paris fashion week since 2002 with the Hangul making its first appearance in his work in 2005.

The exhibition “Hangul = Spirit: Inspired by Korean Characters” is the brain-child of Stephanie Seungmin Kim and was co-organised by herself and Kim Chi-ho, who works with Lie Sang-Bong. Fashion designs, photographs and calligraphy will all be on display at the exhibition, which will run until 16 May 2009.
