About The Artwork

Up, up and away are the words that first come to mind when looking at artworks by South Korean artist Jinho Kee. Balloons’ seems to be a photograph at first glance. However, upon a closer look, this oil on canvas hyperrealism painting skillfully captures the reflection of light on the surface of the balloons through the subtlety of the brushstroke. Jinho Kee views balloons as an accurate metaphor for life - the vicious cycle of tension and relaxation. He believes in the Latin expression ‘carpe diem’ and ‘memento mori’. Carpe diem translates “seize the day” where as Memento mori means “remember that you have to die” - reminding you of the transience nature of carpe diem. Although all balloons are eventually disposed, they are known to elevate the spirit of the crowd. The artist believes in enjoying the present as though you’re at a carnival, where you’re not conscious of time and feel as if you’re in timeless eternity. Jin-Ho Kee has held 16 solo exhibitions and attained several Public Contests. During his career he has participated in over 200 exhibitions. Currently, Jinho Kee is a member of the Korean Fine Arts Association.
