Yoo Young-kuk (1916-2002) was an artist ahead of his time. The artist often said his work wouldn't be sold in his lifetime, considering its abstractness emphasizing nature through basic formative elements. He sold his first painting when he was 60. "He was known as an artist who did not sell his works, but I think it was more like he found no one to buy them. Back then, society did not understand abstract art and people from his hometown said they wouldn't accept works as a gift," recalled Yu Jin, chairman of the Yoo Youngkuk Art Foundation and son of the artist.
