Huh Myoung Wook connects traditional Korean craft and contemporary art by reinventing the possibilities of ottchil within his work. To apply this traditional finish in a more versatile manner, Huh mixes ottchil with various modern painting mediums. Using this new substance, he creates paintings, sculptures, and everyday objects. Huh received his BFA for Metal Craft from Seoul National University of Science and Technology. Select solo exhibitions have been held at Gana Art, Seoul; Koo House, Gyeong-gi; Gallery Noma, Dae-gu; Arario Gallery, Seoul; Cho Eun Sook Gallery, Seoul; Urasoe Art Museum, Okinawa; and Royal Gallery, Seoul. Huh has participated in international fairs such as New York Art Fair, NY; Palm Beach Art Fair, FL; Palm Springs Art Fair, CA; Seattle Art Fair, WA; Art Hamptons, NY; Art Miami, FL; Art Singapore; and Art London, London
