ABOUT

Songhi is Painter Artist from Japan.Her Painting is inspired by nature and human. Her Art shows universal of human.
She was born and raised in Japan as Korean ethnic and she glow up opposite Identity between Capitalism and Socialism. Where she glows up was Capitalism country Japan and what she learns was Socialistic school education since 2 years old to 21 years old. Those two opposite Identity gave her many question and unique perspective.
Currently, she lives and works in Dresden, Germany. She gets inspiration from Dresden people who has strong racism identity. Her Art project is now focusing on racism. One of the her opinion and meaning is humans are connected with invisible circumstance. In your ordinary life that is difficult to see and find them. But when you have little bit more imagination and opened mind, you can find our human circles in daily life. Her Art brings notice for the people who can reach invisible matter of our human circle.Her Art argument is not for fighting or critic on Racism. She knows that human has all time opposite identity. We can not compel a person to change Identity even racism. Opposite of Identity is universal of human, and we can not judge who is wrong.

We believe that there is something universal, but is it true? I believe that the question has a logical foundation, given that what people believe universal has changed over the centuries. As an artist, I am standing on the border, translating the modern value and perspective into my work.
My background has formed the way I observe the world and the role of art. As an ethnic Korean minority, I was born and raised in Japan and was educated at a school affiliated with North Korea for almost 20 years. My parents and my school believed in socialism, although contradictorily I grew up in a capitalism society. My life in Japan had always been surrounded by two opposite values, making me believe that there is no universal justice.
Therefore, I do not judge. I objectively observe and represent the world from my own perspective.
