Artist Spotlight: Jyan Ku

A selection of work by South Korea-born, Brooklyn-based artist Jyan Ku. Attempting to resist the unconscious social and cultural customs that tend to influence and stifle creativity, Ku focuses instead on instinct and expression “without modification and external control.” With this emphasis on purity and freedom, Ku not only creates a world where “everything could be anything,” she encourages her viewers to see things that way too. As she states:

“Color could be emotions, the shape could be characters, and mass could be the stories… If it looks funny, weird or scary, just feel it and having fun with it. They are all inside of us.”
