Bahk Seon Ghi

Bahk Seon-Ghi is an internationally reputed and established contemporary Korean sculptor and installation artist who lives and works in Kyeong Ki-Do, South Korea. Following his graduation from Chung-Ang University in Seoul, he spent several years in Europe, studying sculpture at the Accademia di Belle Arti Brera in Milan and at Barnet and Southgate College in London. Bahk is known for his ethereal installations using natural to create everyday objects such as tables, staircases, frames and circles, which appear to float through light and space. Charcoal, his favorite material, is fundamental in his works with charcoal being the natural substance that holds traditional importance in Korean culture and heritage. Through these delicately suspended pieces of charcoal, Bahk presents the viewers with a new perspective of human’s relationship with nature. Bahk is the recipient of the 2009 Kim Chong Yung Sculpture Award and has participated in solo exhibitions in Miami, Korea, Switzerland, Spain and China, to name just a few. His works are part of many prominent permanent collections worldwide.
