Ryu Ahyoung


b. 1982, South Korea


Ryu Ahyoung have always loved to draw since she was a child, influenced by her mother who majored in Western painting. At the age of 9, Ryu won a prize in a painting competition and my work was exhibited in Berlin, Germany, where she began to excel. Ryu have always been in love with painting ever since. In college, the artist wanted to learn something new, so she majored in metal crafts, but had a hard time because it didn’t suit her. Then she became active as an illustrator, working on video advertisements in collaboration with companies, collaborating with various fields, and publishing books.

Since then, Ryu have partnered with K-Auction, one of the two major auction houses in Korea, and have been actively exhibiting at home and abroad, establishing herself as a painter.
