Seo Young Deok (Korea 1983 - )


About

Seo Young-Deok was born in 1984, South Korea, graduating from the environmental sculpture department of the University of Seoul in 2008.

He has captivated international audiences for producing life-size, hyper-realistic sculptures of human figures made only with welded chains taken from bicycles and industrial machinery. Inspired by the urban lifestyle he experienced as an adult – contrasting drastically with his rural upbringing – Seo explores the relationship between humans and their environment through the creative repurposing of iron chains – a material which has played a critical role in the development of the modern world.

He works with White Room since 2014.
