Born in 1962, Joo Yoon is a Korean painter and sculptor who has studied at Hong Ik University, with a major in Painting. His recent paintings started from a series of self-questioning, "what is painting?"; "what is the nature of painting activities?". Apart from the narration and form of painting, Joo Yoon is still trying to seek answers to these questions. He minimises the expressions through simple and mere actions of painting on the surface, and hopes that viewers would find joy and delight from the basic and raw emotions.
