Busan, South Korea, b. 1987

Abang is regarded as one of the most famous artists for her unique and romantic depiction of us enjoying the modern day, which she achieves by using vibrant colours to reveal the mysterious line between daily life and the non-daily. After receiving a master's degree in illustration from London's Kingston University, she began to paint free-living individuals in vivid colours. Based on the catchphrase “Fun, Witty, and Romantic”, she is currently operating her own brand of design products called “My Real Abang,” including graphics for numerous periodicals, webzines, and album covers. Abang explores “things that keep my life rich, free, sexy and warm” throughout her works, and is actively collaborating with worldwide brands such as Spotify and Valentino, as well as broadcasting, product, and fashion firms to develop an 'Abang-like' style.
