The 6th Pusan International Film Festival (PIFF) has selected a painting in India ink, substantial in Asian and Korean beauty.
It is a black-and-white painting by Master Song Su-Nam (Nam-Chun is his pen name), who is actively pursuing his art career based on a sense of unity of Heaven and Humans, which he regards as the relationship between humans and nature. The strokes of the pen and the composition, with a sense of velocity, display the tenacious power of life, as well as the great achievement of PIFF as an international film festival rising above Asia. One can also feel the natural beauty of Asian arts in the margins between the casual shadings of ink. The images of lines and circles united by the agreement of the brush and the Chinese ink embody the cosmic principle of a round celestial sphere, horizontal earth and human beings standing vertically, based on the principle of Hangul (official Korean characters) vowels. At the same time, the circle also represents the lens of the camera, and the rectangular frame implies the frame of films.
