MOON YOUNG SHIN

Born in Seoul, South Korea, a recent graduate from Royal College of Art, Moon Young SHIN makes contemporary jewellery using handcrafted and self-dyed acrylic and fine silver.

Artist's Statement

Paradox. I think that is very fascinating in that it attracts people and makes them think twice. I would like to talk about everyday life with the idea of paradox in concept as well as function. Basically all my works is about delivering message, and I make effort to figure out how people think and make relationship with my works. This brings many ideas in.

I intend to focus on the communication between the artwork and the wearer by using human figure and/or idea of paradox in many ways. Most works talk about everyday life and are witty, and they are all understood by wearers clearly and strongly.
