Han Sungpil (b.1972) creates art mainly using photography, moving images, and installations to support and to examine a philosophical subject such as environmental issues, originalities, history and relationships between the real and the represented. He strives to understand diverse cultures by exploring nature and interpreting mundane worlds that have been sources of his artistic inspiration and creation. He often includes a sense of humor in a subtle manner incorporating sublime elements of beauty.
