ABANG / Visual artist, Illustrator

서울을 베이스로 활동하는 비주얼아티스트 아방입니다. 일상과 비일상의 오묘한 경계 위에서 나답고 자유롭게 살아가려는 사람들의 모습을 경쾌한 색감으로 풀어냅니다. 전시 뿐 아니라 스포티파이, 발렌티노 등 글로벌 브랜드를 비롯해 방송, 제품, 패션브랜드와 같은 다양한 기업과도 활발히 협업하며 아방다운 스타일을 만들어 가고 있습니다. 조형물과 공간 디렉팅, 꼴라주 등 일관된 무드 안에서  영역을 확장하는 중입니다. 

Abang is a visual artist based in Seoul. Her signature illustrations are fanciful and witty expressions of everyday life. Abang’s work ranges from brand collaboration / commissioned work to publication, exhibitions, classes and various personal projects. Some of her new explorations include spacial direction, collage art and sculptures.
