WINNER‘s Mino and Seungyoon, alongside Henry Lau, will debut their artwork at London’s Saatchi Gallery for the START Art Fair.
An official statement from the London Arts Fair confirmed the K-Pop stars would showcase their art during this year’s fair! The fair’s director and curator Grey Skipwith explained that, during the success of K-Pop in 2020, they wanted to bring some of that culture to the UK.
Speaking about the opportunity, soloist Henry explained how excited he is at the idea of his work being showcased at the Saatchi Gallery.
I am beyond excited about showing my art globally at START and for the first time in the UK at the prestigious Saatchi Gallery during a key month in the art calendar. It has become a very important part of my life, and I hope that fans new and old will enjoy seeing it in person.
— Henry Lau
All three of these K-Pop idols are known for not just being talented musicians but shining in their ability to create art!
In the past, Mino has been very vocal about his love for creating stand-out pieces and debuted as an artist back in 2019, showcasing his work in a gallery for the first time.
It is also not the first time Mino has been showcased in the Saatchi gallery. In 2020, his acrylic paintings were displayed as part of the “Korean Eye 2020: Creativity and Daydream” exhibit.
The annual START Art Fair has been running since 2014 and aims to act as a springboard for new and global artists to have their work seen by a larger audience!
It will be the debut of Henry and Seungyoon, who will showcase their pieces alongside Mino when the exhibition opens in October!
