Bul-Lip-Mun-Ja - Jungsan Kimyunsik

Jungsan Kimyunsik Bul-Lip-Mun-Ja
JUNGSAN (B.1946)




Jungsan was born in Yeosu, Joellanam-do, South Korea, and at the age of 13 he entered the Beomeo-sa Buddhist Temple in Busan. He spent the next 50 years in meditation and self-reflection, while exploring creative outlets such as jazz music and the culinary arts. After these 50 years of study, Jungsan decided to embark on a mission of sharing his wisdom through visual art.

Jungsan reflects the Zen Buddhist teachings concerning the external sins and desires. He paints and collages on one side of a matchbox while leaving the other side blank. This echoes the lesson of the Heart Sutra ‘Form is none other than emptiness and emptiness is none other than form’.

One surface tells a story of abundance and the other, its liberation.
Jungsan is also well known for his meticulous works on paper, which combine folded pieces of blank paper and others emblazoned with his distinctive calligraphic touch.

  • Cacho Falcon  (+)

    Biography : In 2003, Cacho began selling what he termed “Therapeutic Denim”—jeans custom painted with personal images. Clients brought their denim to Falcon, and as they told him about their life, he rendered their stories and confessions onto the material. These drawings were the beginnings of Falcon’s identity narratives. The drawings also marked the beginning of his dream-like style, which is often situated in a psychological tapestry of private and public spaces, not dissimilar to the urban setting from which Falcon lives and works. In addition to Falcon’s “Therapeutic Denim”, he began cutting and fitting T-shirts with a similar artistic idea. The custom-made garments displaying unapologetic and individual emblems of experience or identity caught the attention of Perry Ellis, which led Falcon to Fashion Week in 2004. Elle Magazine included one of Falcon’s denim jackets in their pages that December and soon afterwards Falcon designed a one-of-a-kind collection of denim for Guess. In 2005, American Idol winner, Carrie Underwood, wore a pair Falcon’s jeans to the finals. Despite the attention he received from the fashion industry, Falcon also worked odd jobs and lived in small apartments throughout Brooklyn with other young Paraguayans taking root in New York City. He continued to make custom clothes with a Whilhelmina agent who booked him gigs at various denim stores in malls across America where he drew on clothing for individual customers. While Falcon found this work both interesting and somewhat bleak, he was still largely motivated to make work based on personal experiences. In 2006 he returned to New York City and decided, for the first time, to devote the majority of his work to painting and drawing his own life experiences and, this time, onto canvas. Here, Falcon was forced to revisit painful childhood and early adult experiences. When he began to paint his own stories—riddled with torment, abuse, addiction, and the failures of past relat
