It’s never easy to bring technology and art together in such a delicate way as Korean artist Kim Yon Soo does. This traditional Japanese art is mixed with wires, electrical conductors, cement and batteries to add a different texture and perceptive to the paintings. 

Originally composed of natural and organic images like flowers, birds, humans and cherry blossoms, the pieces become artificial and mechanical when blended with technology. However, in most cases, it’s the colored wires that give the images the extra life and energy needed. This is a piece of art work that needs to be explored in detailed as it’s incredibly well done. Every piece is carefully put together to create a design that is simple mesmerizing. One would think that science and art can’t go together, but Kim Young So has proven it to be the perfect mix.
