Katsuya Terada + Kim Jung Gi - Illustrated Book
127 pages, 8.5 x 11 inches. Soft cover with a dust jacket.
For the first time ever in history, Terada Katsuya and Kim Jung Gi have come together to create their masterpiece in this new book. This book is a collection of fierce yet beautiful black lines and transcendent depictions of space. Many readers might think, “Who drew what and how?” when looking through the art created by these two.
Instead of showing the works of these two artists in a traditional art book format, the editor decided to let the artists create their images freely as they would in their sketchbooks. We hope you take your time to slowly absorb the energy of the lines and appreciate the beauty of the colors, rather than focusing on the logic.
This book depicts the daily life of an artist.
It also includes their own retrospective works and interviews.
