Born in Seoul, Australian landscape painter Min-Woo Bang attended the South Korean National Art High School before immigrating to NSW.
Nature, mist, aura and atmosphere are key elements in Min-Woo Bang's works. He transforms each canvas into a visual concept of time and memory by smudging images of trees and enveloping them in a fine mist and subtle light. "When I paint trees, sky or misty landscapes on canvas with layers by layers, this act of brushing transforms into an act of meditation. In this way I am trying to feel the nature in which I am experiencing”.
A finalist in several awards including The Wynne (2010), the NSW Parliament Plein Air painting prize (2012), the Tattersall's Art Prize (2015, 2016), Gold Coast Art Prize (2015), Sunshine Coast Art Prize (2016). In 2016 Min-Woo received a commendation award in the Mosman Prize (NSW).
Min-Woo Bang is currently a director of the Croydon Art Studio in Sydney where he runs art classes for children and adults.
