Kyu Nam Han Artist
Kyu Nam Han was born in Inchon, Korea, He obtained his bachelor's degree at Seoul National University, his master's degree at Ohio State University, and, became an American citizen in 1972. He has exhibited in various parts of the United States, including Manhattan as well as in Korea. He has also produced public murals, including one for American Express headquarters at the World Financial Center, the another for the Peace Plaza in Tenafly, N.J.
In an early New York Times review of his work, Vivien Raynor wrote: “Mr. Han is much exercised by the gap between Eastern and Western art traditions, as are many of his fellow emigres. But he stands out from the crowd as a Romantic who would reconcile the irreconcilable or, as he puts it, find in painting 'a common denominator where East and West meet, where there is no difference but only harmony and unity.'” …. Scenes set in the Far East and Europe tend to be tranquil and decorative with linear accents in the manner of Dufy. But this is not the case with Manhattan and, small wonder, for Mr. Han tackles the city as if expecting to be turned into a pillar of salt for his efforts -- working in grays diluted with white and touched with pastel hues.”
Mr. Han is happy to have become a member of the downtown New Rochelle artist community.
