I have graduated from visual design degree and used to work as a graphic designer from South korea. My artworks are mostly inspired by my surroundings; I make to express scenes that I have felt meaningful or which I found a darkness held within.
Especially I have been influenced by every arts philosophy, art therapy since I was young. My artworks are based on ego and sexual things. Using the visual languages, I reconsider the social issues of differences, like cultural, racial and sexual.

As a kid I have always been interested in art. I grew up under parents who are keen in fashion. However, I never thought art and design could be my career until I realized that I love working on design and art more than anything. It took me a long way to study fashion eventually. Still, my wish could not be achieved because I had to face financial issues.
Since I was unable to finish the course, I decided to encourage myself to be an independent designer. Although I have only started making my very own accessories recently, I enjoy the condition of being solo designer as I am free to do what I want and do not need to go through complicated process or explanations.
To explain my works that are to be presented are refinements of my random thoughts and ideas. They do not depend on any art theme but solely my thoughts that have been coming up to my mind time by time.

Things that I’ve seen with my eyes seemed to shaky or blurry. I thought it was the way it looked like originally. I thought the world I live in was cloudy and unclear. No, it was perfectly clear and shiny world to me. I realized that the world is brighter and much clear than I’ve seen since I started wearing glasses years ago. As a result of my eyes test, I have astigmatism and myopia. I am the person who can view the world diversely and my name is SangJung Chu.
Hedi (Jaehoon Ahn, Korean) is an emerging Photographer based in Melbourne.
Born in Jinhae, Korea in 1989, Ahn’s interest in photography began when he was 28 in Melbourne. He has started on his career after 3 years of experience as a fashion designer; in Greedilous, Maestro and Renoma(Korea). He has started learning photography by working as a photographer assistant and contributed in the shoot as a fashion stylist; using his fashion-related skills that he has learnt in the past. The advantage of working in two roles has enabled him to get more working opportunities and experiences. Also, it has let him to view things from a wider perspective on his personal work.
Generally, most people attempt to be recognized as a person of their desired look; a mask that covers what they desire to hide underneath. The masks are sometimes overvalued and spontaneously provokes oneself to act indiscriminately. My project involves photographic images that explore this concept of the mask and asks the viewers to question themselves regarding the matter.
