Art Cen­ter Pplus

Harper's Bazaar Art (Indonesia) - - Exhibition Highlight -

Ev­ery gallery dreams of hav­ing an artist whose works are rec­og­nized glob­ally. The Seoul-based Art Cen­ter Pplus—pro­moter and nur­turer of mod­ern art—rep­re­sents Dong-yoo Kim, a house­hold name across Asia who is pop­u­lar for his de­pic­tions of pop-cul­ture icons through the medium of pix­i­la­tion and pop-art, cre­at­ing a mul­ti­tude of minia­ture por­traits to form a big­ger, more ab­sorb­ing im­age. One of which was his con­tri­bu­tion to the glam­orous Esprit Dior Ex­hi­bi­tion last year in Seoul where he mag­i­cally fash­ioned a large im­age of Dior from a se­ries of Mar­i­lyn Mon­roe pic­tures. His paint­ing of Her Majesty

Queen El­iz­a­beth II back in 2012 was also highly praised. Held at the Na­tional Por­trait Gallery in Lon­don, the Queen: Art & Im­age ex­hi­bi­tion fea­tured a wide-rang­ing dis­play of im­ages of The Queen through­out her 60-year reign, with one im­age—en­ti­tled El­iz­a­beth vs. Diana—con­sist­ing of 1106 tiny por­traits of Princess Diana. Kim’s work has been show­cased glob­ally and sold at pres­ti­gious auc­tions, such as his Mao vs. Mon­roe at Sotheby’s Lon­don, and last March he held a solo ex­hi­bi­tion at Scope New York 2016.
