Lecture of Mr. Choi Jeong Hwa
Choi Jeong Hwa is the brightest and one of the most recognizable Korean artists, who creates masterpieces of the most ordinary materials. Soda bottles, plastic shopping bags or colored dishes from the FixPrice store — any of these items in Mr. Choi’s hands becomes an installation with a unique texture. The artist admires the harmony and chaos of the urban environment, carefully avoids classic museum exhibitions and searches for his "treasures" in old flea markets, in souvenir shops and in the midst of market rows. At Moscow Urban FEST, Mr. Choi rides with his constant motto “My art is your heart” and a philosophical lecture on the search for happiness in the city.
