Byun Wol-ryong was a Korean artist who was born in and spent most of his life in Russia. After showing much artistic potential at a young age he gained acceptance into the prestigious Leningrad Institute for Painting, Sculpture, and Architecture where he later spent 35 years as a professor.
Despite not being well known in Korea during his lifetime, he is slowly starting to gain popularity due to a number of recent exhibitions held in Korea.
His work includes oil paintings, etchings, lithographs and drawings and despite him spending his whole life in Russia, there is a strong Korean theme found in much of his work.
The exhibition at the Jeju Museum of Art will run until October 30 and will showcase around 220 of his works.
