Nam Tchun Mo


Born in 1961 in Yungyang, South Korea. Nam Tchun Mo lives and works in Daegu, South Korea & Cologne, Germany. He holds an MFA from the School of Fine Art at Keimyung University, Daegu, South Korea.

Through the repetition of simple lines and a mixture of natural oriental colors, Nam Tchun Mo creates works beyond the boundaries of sculpture and painting. Dynamic and rhythmic lines built on the surface of the canvas create harmony between light and shadow areas. His paintings are sculptural pieces where the lines are infinite space.

Color and light are the key ingredients of Nam Tchun Mo’s art. He is constantly playing on them, exploiting the most varied resources of the chromatic spectrum: orange, yellow, blue, while not neglecting the subtle modulations of black and white.

Nam Tchun Mo is an artist representing the new generation of the Korean monochrome movement, Dansaekhwa.

Recently, he won 1st prize from the Hachonghyn Foundation as a great master of the Dansaekhwa movement.
