Kwon ok-yon

Kwon Ok-yon is a first-generation Korean abstract and Surrealist artist. It’s known that he considered the West to be of zero influence in his life as soon as he arrived in Paris. He used traditional colors and images of the moon and wild geese from his hometown in his abstract works of art. André Breton, the pioneer of the Surrealist movement, said that Kwon Ok-yon’s paintings are works of Asian Surrealism that truly go beyond reality.
