Born in Seoul, Han Mook (1914-2016) has lived and worked in Paris since 1961. Deeply marked by the 1969 Apollo mission, the cosmic and stellar space became a prominent theme in his work. He borrowed his artistic vocabulary from international abstraction, while combining it with bright colors and curved, discontinuous patterns.
