The sculpture is a great work of art. Where there is a sculpture, of course, there is an artist and a story behind it. However, this world is full of different people and cultures. This means that the work of art will also differ depending on the artist and culture.

What you consider ordinary works of art may be considered by others as unique works. Likewise with sculptures designed for this unexpected reason.

A South Korean artist received worldwide attention for his sculptures that are very similar to humans and some have a unique shape and ‘the strange’. So similar, the sculptures he created can make people shudder.

An artist certainly has his own way to appreciate thoughts that sometimes seem even creepy, as was done by South Korean artist, Xooang Choi who was born in 1975.

Choi’s interest in sculpting began when he entered an art high school. Choi held his first exhibition in 2002 and has worked as an artist for more than 10 years. Obtained an MFA degree in Sculpture from Seoul National University in 2005.

Every sculpture he creates takes about 2-5 months to complete. The sculptures he created haunted anyone who saw them because of their realistic and strange-looking shapes. His artworks seem disturbing and arousing thoughts that explore human rights, discrimination, pathological conditions of society, isolation, loneliness, sex, and some of them with the theme of gender politics.

Sure, many have called the artwork part of a horror film, but Choi claims the sculptures are the most beautiful of all. Unlike other sculptors, Choi combines body parts to create a statue that shows his concern for the human condition in society. Choi, reap controversy from some of his works. He is known as a sculpture artist who creates works of art with the theme of the human body. Choi combines human body parts to express his concern for today’s society. “My sculpture may look hyper-realism in terms of technique. However, what I want to say is not really what it was imagined. But I made it resemble the human body to achieve a certain phenomenon or status.”

People consider Choi’s work to have another mysterious side. The statues are haunting and attracting public attention. This is one of the strengths of Choi’s works of art, so that they can survive and strengthen their existence in the South Korean art world. But according to Choi, all of his works, have different purposes and reasons.

“If someone feels physically or mentally uncomfortable when viewing my work, that means my work is successful,” he added. Choi’s artwork depicts human emotions frozen in time. These statues reveal the reality of ordinary people and succeed in bringing out their behavior and feelings.

Choi has held many solo and group exhibitions including DOOSAN Residency 2017, Islet of Aspergers, The Vegetative State, and many others. Come see below!
