Buwon Seo (b. 1990)

Buwon Seo tells a story channeling the character ‘B.B rabbit’. The artist, who has enjoyed making this and that since childhood, encountered art toys, and it led to his current art practice. The image of an adorable rabbit in a wide range of mediums such as art toys, paintings and sculptures contain some cynical worries and wanderings about the artist’s life.

The artist describes the rabbit character as a portrait of himself. The dark and cynical context of his work creates a subtle contrast with candy-like color palettes and the lovely rabbit, adding a new layer to the work.

Buwon, whose work is like bittersweet candy, is energetically expanding his artistic territory by trying novel mediums. He is also collaborating with creative forces such as Nike, Asics, Code Kunst and Sambypen.
