K-pop stars showcase their art in London

K-pop stars Song Min-ho and Kang Seung-yoon will be headed for a London exhibition this autumn.

Known for their popular music, these fab guys from the band WINNER will showcase their art, alongside fellow K-pop singer Henry Lau, at the START Art Fair, being held at the Saatchi Gallery, London. A selection of limited editions works by all three can be bought in June on the START.Art digital platform. And remember, if a limited edition print is signed by the artist, it could go up in value.

'Music tells a story, whether it’s of a happy ending or a sad ending, there seems to be a clear-cut ending,' Min-ho said.

The 28-year-old, who first started painting in his 20s, made his debut as a painter in 2019 at an exhibition in Seongnam. He will be presenting a selection of paintings, including a mysterious self-portrait.

Min-ho and Kang, a singer, songwriter and producer known as KANG SEUNG YOON, show their artworks under the names Ohnim and Yoo yeon. Kang himself will be showing black and white photographs taken during various trips.

"Because of our fandom and fame, I think we introduce a lot of people who weren’t interested in art to the world of art," he reckoned.

Joining them in London will be singer, musician and actor Lau, who took up pendulum painting last year and will also display five artworks.

"Like my musical performances, what I did was I actually thought about the location, picking my paints, what I was going to use, my canvas, just every little thing," he said.

Lau said examples of this included unplanned droplets of pink paint in artwork "Starry".

Sounds a bit like J Pop vs J Pollock!

Asked about balancing art with music, the classically-trained violinist said, 'I think that's what's really helping me get through these times.'

We think this is one show NOT TO MISS!
