Those who have learned to write Korean probably at least once went through a few of those language journals or exercise books gridded with small rectangles to be filled in with letters. These books are a standard in the Korean elementary school curricula and thus a common way of perceiving the written language for many Koreans. Ahn Sang-soo, justifiably one of Korea’s most influential graphic designers, is one who brought challenges to this norm and created a written code—stepping outside the box, quite literally, thereby revolutionizing Korean typography. 

In an acknowledgment of such accomplishment and talent, Seoul Museum of Art has selected Ahn for this year’s SeMA Green, a biannual exhibition “reflect[ing] the achievements of senior artists and estimating the contemporaneity and future of Korean art.” Elaborately showcasing the graphic designer's lifelong achievements, Nalgae.Pati will offer you an insight into the creative and empowering elements that he exposed to the many aspects of the language, along with the new and authentic ways in which the artist made the discipline a cultural tool.
