Label:
Son Man Jin has made calligraphy an integral part of his work since his debut exhibition in 1992. He often selects traditional Korean poems written in Chinese characters and transforms them through a lively visual presentation with humorous figures and touches of color. The poem in this work is written by Shin Hum (pen name: Sang Chon, 1566-1628); it conveys the poet's appreciation and understanding of life.
