Imperfect beauty

Nov 16,2017
Artist Oh Se-yeol with his painting “Untitled,” during a press preview of his solo show “Innocent Eye” at Hakgojae Gallery in central Seoul on Wednesday. The figure in the painting, who looks like a child ashamed and sad, is Mary Magdalene, the 72-year-old artist explained. He presents 33 paintings depicting imperfect and unhappy human figures in his signature naive art style in this solo show, which opens to the public on Saturday. [MOON SO-YOUNG]
