korea & vietnam

through the lens of food

This project utilises visual communication design to uncover the subtle connection between South Korea and Vietnam, focusing on the realm of culinary art. The illustrations draw inspiration from the traditional painting styles of the two countries: Minhwa from Korea and Dong Ho from Vietnam. Hanji, a traditional Korean paper, was chosen as the printing material for the project.

The solo exhibition showcasing this project was held at Seoul National University in 2021.
