How long have you been an artist? What is your specialty? Where do u find inspiration?
Actually, I’m a bit embarrassed to call myself an artist. I tend to call myself a designer.

I studied design since I was 20. Honestly, I didn’t know that I would be doing motion design in the future. But I felt it was more fun than I thought, so now motion design is my specialty that I can confidently say.

I usually get inspiration from Pinterest and Vimeo. Nowadays, I think Instagram also has a lot of great artists.

Do you have a job in the art industry? If So, what’s one thing you don’t like about it? If no, where would your dream job be?
I haven’t got a job yet because I just graduated from college. I work freelance for a little over 2 years when I was a student.

A dream job for me would be to own a design studio. I dream of co-operating with friends who are good at branding and graphics.

Do you have a favorite Artist?
Rather than telling a specific artist, I love the work of BUCK and ManVsMachine.

What is one accomplishment you’ve had in your life? Does not need to be art related.
There was no particular accomplishment. There were always good and ordinary things.

One thing that comes to mind is that my work has been featured on Behance, so many people can see my work.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years? 10 years? 20 years?
I really don’t know whether I’ll be in Seoul or New York, I’ll work for the company or own mine.

If you could meet and talk to any person in the world, dead or alive, who would it be?
I want to meet Steve Jobs who has a stubborn personality.

How is one way you make money with your art?
Usually, the company offers me a project but sometimes people message me on Instagram asking me to create some motion for them.

If you could go anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
The White House’s most secret place. Because I’ve seen a designated survivor on Netflix recently.

What is your favorite brand of art supply? Whether it’s a brand of pencils or brand of camera or software
The combination of the iPad and Apple pencil is always the best. I love all of Apple’s products.

Any advice for young artists?
I do not seem to be able to give good advice because I’m young too.
Nevertheless, in short, Look a lot and feel a lot.
