Biography/ Artist Statement


문형태(1976년생)는 유머와 격투를 담아낸 꿈같은 캔버스에 일상적인 대상들을 표현합니다. 그는 CoBrA라는 표현주의와 초현실주의를 섞어 사용한 전위적인 그룹과, 원시적이고 거친 선으로 기름 화풍의 전형성을 깨버린 프랑스 화가인 장 뒤부페의 작품에 큰 영향을 받았습니다. 이러한 작품들은 문의 스타일 형성에 중대한 역할을 하여, 다채롭고 표현력 있는 다양한 색채와 얼굴 표정을 통해 내면의 감정을 드러내며, '마티에르'라 불리는 도료 사용으로 깊은 촉감을 전달합니다. 또한 그의 작품들은 대체로 주황색조로 둘러싸여 따뜻한 분위기를 조성하는데, 이는 흙과 물을 혼합하여 반복적으로 덮고 칼질하는 독특한 방식을 통해 달성됩니다.

문형태의 작품들은 사람들 간의 관계가 주된 주제로 존재하며, 이는 작가의 메시지를 나타내는 관계 코드 번호 신호로 변환됩니다. 숫자 1은 자신을 나타내고, 2는 관계를, 3은 가족을, 4는 사회를, 그리고 5는 고립을 상징합니다. 작가는 이 숫자들을 자신의 원작 캐릭터에 부여하여 상상력 넘치는 이야기를 구성합니다. 최근 작품에서는 예전 작품들과 비교하여 거친 선과 깊고 어두운 색조가 공존하며, 그림의 질감을 강조하여 성숙한 예술 작품을 선보이고 있습니다.


 Hyeong tae (b.1976-) represents daily objects on his dreamy canvas with wit and wrest. He was interested in the works by CoBrA, and avant-garde group known for exploiting the style of expressionism and surrealism, and Jean Dubuffet, a French artist breaking out of he typicality of oil painting with his rough and primitive lines. Their work highly affects the formation of Moon’s style, leading to outstanding multicolor, expression of the face revealing his inner sentiment, and matière appearing a deep sense of touch. 

His paintings, moreover, are surrounded by ambient ochre color, exposing the warm mood, since he applies this unique way achieved by a mixture of the soil and water, repeatedly covering and skimming it. A relationship between people is the main subject underlies much of his work, which is a signal of relationship code numbers that indicate the artist’s message. The number 1 means himself, 2 does relationship, 3 is a family, 4 implies the society, and 5 connects to solitude. The artist puts the numbers on his original character and makes a story with his imaginative narrative. In his recent work, rougher lines and deep and dark colors coexist comparing to the past works, and Moon shows his mature artwork by stressing the texture of the picture.
