London Arts Fair confirms through their official statement that K-Pop stars would showcase their art during this year’s fair. The fair’s director and curator Grey Skipwith explained that, during the success of K-Pop in 2020, they wanted to bring some of that culture to the UK.
K-pop Henry explains how excited he is as his art work will b being showcased at the Saatchi Gallery.
He said, “I am beyond excited about showing my art globally at START and for the first time in the UK at the prestigious Saatchi Gallery during a key month in the art calendar. It has become a very important part of my life, and I hope that fans new and old will enjoy seeing it in person.”
In the past, Mino has expressed his love for creating stand-out pieces and debuted as an artist back in 2019, showcasing his work in a gallery for the first time.
It is also not the first time Mino has been showcased in the Saatchi gallery. In 2020, his acrylic paintings were displayed as part of the “Korean Eye 2020: Creativity and Daydream” exhibit.
The annual START Art Fair has been running since 2014 and aims to act as a springboard for new and global artists to have their work seen by a larger audience.
It will be the debut of Henry and Seungyoon, who will showcase their pieces alongside Mino when the exhibition opens in October.
