Cho Yong-ik

Cho Yong-ik, borns 1934, is a South Korean Artist.


Cho, Yong-ik graduated from an Art school in Seoul National's University, and went to the Paris biennale two times in 1961 and 1969 as the Korean representative. His collection is now housed in the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Leeum Museum, Ho-Am Museum and many more. 

If we look at Cho, Yong-ik's works, we notice his brilliant sense of color and the movements vibrant with life, qualities that are absent in many of the artists from that period. We can also see the scratch works made by a combination of fingertips, brush and knife, and the wild energy spurting from his paintings.
