Minho Kwon has been the recipient of many awards including the JERWOOD DRAWING PRIZE - STUDENT PRIZE and the V&A ILLUSTRATION AWARDS - STUDENT PROZE. Kwon is a storyteller and an image-maker. His densely multifaceted drawings command your attention his specialness as an artist is his ability to fuse industrialised South Korea and its political economic history through the expressive power of drawing. The result is potent, brooding and dreamlike; dark blueprints for a dystopic past.
Kwon's colossal drawings at first seem incomplete; architectonic lines have been drawn and rendered with an obsessive attentiveness to detail, demonstrating a comprehensive understanding of his materials - layers of pencil, graphite and charcoal. "We Also Deserve To Live" has transformed The Foundry Gallery into a test-bed for Kwon's vast creations. Views that cannot be found in one drawing can be found in another alowing us the space to construct our own story.
