Singer Cho Young-nam revealed his feelings about opening the exhibition after the ‘Picture Masterpiece Controversy’.
On the afternoon of the 8th, a press conference for ‘Art, Heart, Hwatu, and Cho Young-nam’ was held at the Pika Project Cheongdam main office in Gangnam-gu, Seoul.
On this day, Cho Young-nam said, “I’m still an amateur artist. I’m a modern art lover,” and said, “If you care about what people say, it won’t be a big deal.”
He said, “I want this to be my sale after (five years of legal battle). I think the state is asking me to draw and live because I am old and old. I think the state has raised me for 5 years. I hope this is not the case. I want to do this luxurious art exhibition,” he said, “I think I have become a painter with a story.”
‘Art, Heart, Hwatu, and Cho Young-nam’ is the first exhibition to be held after being acquitted of the ‘Great Painting Controversy’.
In 2016, Cho Young-nam was indicted by the prosecution after suspicion that the unknown painter Song, whom he usually knew, painted Cho Young-nam’s picture instead. Legal battles continued for five years, but the case was closed on June 25 when the Supreme Court condemned Cho Young-nam.
This exhibition covers the entire world of Cho Young-nam’s works from the 1960s, when he studied art on his own, to the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s, 2010s, and the latest 2020 works. There are about 50 works to be submitted. It will be held until November 30th, and will be held for free.
