Korean-New York Artist Association(KNYAA)

The first show at the Korean-American Culture Gallery featured the work of 27 artists (OK KUN JOO, OH SEI YOUNG, BONG SOO KIM, JONG SIK LIM, WON SUK KIM).

Korean-New York Artist

“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.”

Pablo Picasso

예술은 고양이 눈빛처럼 쉽사리 변하는 것이 아니라, 뿌리깊게 한 세계를 깊이 파고드는 것이다.

                       박수근 화백

Art is not easily changed like eyes of a cat, and it is to be profoundly and ineradicably affected to one world.

                      Park, Soo-keun
