[Exhibition Introduction] You can experience the warmth of the yellow sun and the warm sunshine of Van Gogh’s body, watch the rest of the Parisians that Renoir observes from the side, take a stroll along the pale Parisian city where time and space are at a standstill Have you ever imagined? If you can dip your feet in Klimt’s golden wave, and if the main characters in Matisse’s painting dance in front of my eyes to the jolly jazz rhythm, what would it look like? This is also a wonderful scene you will meet at the exhibition. Did Van Gogh, Renoir, Caruvot, Klimt, Matisse, and the five great masters met with some Muse and left such a beautiful piece? This exhibition added skill and imagination to the paintings in order to empathize with their special moments. I want you to feel the moment when the great artists meet the Muse in your life, your eyes, your head, your fingertips, your mind, right here. The moment of inspiration is not far away.

[Exhibition Introduction]
The book is the foundation of all art. This is why it is difficult to tell the identity of literary arts in East Asia except for the book. In particular, kanji and pencil ink have more meaning than material and tools of writing. East Asia is no longer a country divided by Korea, China, and Japan. It is a community that is made up of ink paintings of Korea, China and Japan. This exhibition of 75 East Asian Stroke artists representing Korea, China, and Japan as a problem in the East Asian dimension is the exhibition of such infinite implications.
