Finally a new Q&A in Seoul! This time the topic is art and the guest is Sam. I’ve visited two of his recent exhibitions and I can tell you that after just seeing one of his artwork, you can see how Sambypen has a clear and very recognizable style.
From his interview I agree the most about how hard is for young people to show their work. But I guess, as he also says, it’s long-run job so we just need to keep trying!

What do you aim for?
(I aim for being the most successful artist in the world. lol) I want to be an artist who interacts with people & culture.
Disadvantages and difficulties in your profession
There’s no disadvantages nor difficulties.
It’s such a long-run job as an individual artist that it’s hard to get opportunities as a young artist.
Who or what inspires you?
Why are you in Seoul?
When I was in NY for college, I couldn’t get any opportunity to show my personal artwork because I was there with a international student visa. I came here to begin my career.
Favorite book, film and music
Book: 1A84 by Murakami Haruki
