Daeyong Byun

Daeyong Byun was born in Busan in 1972. He is one of the few  artist who has own distinct style among Korean pop artists during 2000s. He led active communication with the reality beyond the trend of pop aesthetic, and he has the power to create the various layers of reality conceived as a rich symbol and metaphor. Byun is a visual poet. His works are fairytales and their compositions, purposeful, the soft pastel colour schemes and arguably adorable subject matter seemingly reenacting scenes from a preschool storybook, coming to life in a standstill, a three-dimensional rendition of a cartoon show from a distant childhood.
