street culture. Her drawings, in a quick
glance, reminding us of graffiti, are delineated
in quick and harsh brushstrokes.

of Korean underground street culture in
a direct way, but the result ironically
resembles Korean traditional ink painting,
Sumook, and calligraphy. The drawings, reflecting
the rhythm and beat of the underground music
and the performance of club DJing, portray
dreams and conflicts of today’s youth culture.
Musically she continues to produce electronic

release, 2002) and remixes and has participated
in various shows and festival. Nakion will
