son min chul

son min chul is a painter whose works deal with the double-faced nature of religion and wars motivated by religion. the sexual and violent images provoked heated discussions at former exhibtions.


"religious wars like the crusades, the kosovo civil war or the bosnia civil war are still existing. despite the long history of religious wars, many people still can't distance themselves from religion but keep on glorifying it or are fanatic about it. i wanted to show them the double-sidedness of their ambition/desire through presenting a small  part of the most basic truth that there is no right answer.


i want to be pumking.
while working on this project i had many confrontations with religious people. though i expected this i want them to feel as it looks. i think this might be the answer." (artist statement)
