Jaeyeol Han: My interest in other people, the subconscious impression they make on me – that’s my passion.
What are your expressing thru your portraits?
My paintings show a distinction about the power of existence when complete strangers become objects of interest to me.
My favorite piece is always and without exception the piece I’m currently creating, working on.
Will you branch out into other forms of art like sculpture, pottery, etc?
Not at the moment. But contemporary art forms have increased so much I’d be surprised if I don’t, as you say, branch out in the future; Graphic design is one possibility that interests me
Can you see yourself painting Disney or other famous animated characters’ portraits Which one would be your choice to paint?
The thought never occurred to me but if I ever meet Donald Duck and he wants to discuss commissioning me to paint his portrait I’d have to seriously consider it.
You will have to ask them – I’m an artist, not a mind reader. But it would be someone who want to see into themselves.
Is there a certain movie or TV program you would love to see your pieces featured in?
BBC feature documentary on my work
