    Detailed Description : The artist, Moon Hyeong Tae has expressed his daily routines, experiences and surrounding incidents ingeniously. In his artworks, extremely ordinary materials maximize his own sense thanks to thick and splendid colors of matiere and physical properties of paints. Although his artworks are similar to documentary in a sense that they describe himself in daily life and surrounding routines, its distorted shapes and senses of colors well expose surrealistic sense beyond daily routine which the artist experiences. If there is any artwork that requires information and aspiration when people review it, the artworks of Moon Hyeong Tae could be ones that require senses. Because of this, the artist doesn't want any specific information, analysis of expression format or conclusion. Although his artworks contain specific shapes just like diary, he doesn't draw only realities which he experienced by five senses. In addition, subjects in his art works have truth which everyone can sympathize although they are not same as realities. Therefore, we can't help loving his art works. This aspect is a contact point and communication method with mass which he owns. He focuses on the fact that passing emotion at a certain moment is varying although general behaviors exist to everyone. Delicate and attractive sense of difference which is created in a way that sharing of record and personal emotion are imported to a distorted shape is made at this moment. Whether or not it is planned or extemporaneous is not important for him. As he mentioned that he dreams of a person who lives happily and magnificently not dreaming of a famous and excellent artist rather than approach in terms of artist or art formats, it would be correct that he performs his art works as a person who completes his life. His recent art works show more future-centric aspects than previous ones. Since his art works are carried out as a recorded format just like his diary, his past also has lots of influence upon art wor
