Event Description : With the dawn of the New Year, Korean Cultural Centre India presents the art exhibition “Unknown Journey” curated by Insang Song. 
The artworks by Mahaveer Swami from India and Park Sung Yu from Korea who are pursuing the art of today based on the traditional art technique and spirit of each country are displayed in “Unknown Journey”. The two artists from two countries will also be taking an Special Workshop program: Tell Me Your Wish! 

The two artists explore the world of art in their own unique way. Both the artists enjoy the curiosity and spirit that comes along with the unknown journey they take to that world of creativity.

Mahaveer Swami is an artist who continues the tradition of Indian miniature paintings. Swami became interested in the old paintings and nature that he encountered while he travelled to Korea and imprinted those objects deeply in his mind which are depicted in his art works. He reproduced masterpieces of the Joseon Dynasty of Korea as exquisite miniature paintings in his own style. He even adopted common grasses and animals he saw on the Korean roads as subjects of his paintings. All are derived from the artistic curiosity that knows no era or boundary. 

Park Sung Yu is an artist who paints elements from Korean traditional paintings like flowers and grasses from a present day perspective. He explores wild flowers and grasses as subjects of his works which escapes the interest of the common and ordinary. Wild flowers and grasses are the existences that withstand the rough soil, overcoming extreme weather conditions. Hence, these as a subject motivate and move the artist. In his artworks, these wild flowers and grasses are displayed in a dreamlike and surreal atmosphere and reflect the inner curiosity and feelings of artist who explores deep inside the world of nature.
