Huh Hwe Tae was born in 1957 at Suncheon and has won various outstanding awards, including the prize at the Grand Award: The Most Renowned Korean in the 21st Century(Art, Culture) in 2016, which marks a milestone in his career.

 

With 50 years of experience studying and practicing traditional Korean calligraphy, artist Huh Hwe-Tae took inspiration from nature to create a new art form called “emography” that blends emotion and calligraphy to tell stories.

 

His trial has been maintained looking for new methods in which he can transform calligraphy into contemporary art. In order to escape from past images of mere brushstrokes on plain paper, Huh Hwe Tae has been experimenting with inventing new materials freeing himself of stereotypical painting and brushwork.

 

He has had invitational exhibitions overseas such as in Germany, USA, China, and domestic. So far he has participated in various exhibitions and had twenty-one Solo exhibition and twenty-eight Group exhibitions as well. He recently had an exhibition in Slovakia, which provided many visitors a chance to appreciate the unique charm and dynamism of Korea, broadening the horizons of Korean traditional arts.
