Jung-woo Ha: Solo Exhibition
May 21 – June 9, 2015
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 21, 6-8pm

Able Fine Art NY Gallery is pleased to present the gallery’s first solo exhibition with the celebrated actor and visual artist Jung-woo Ha, featuring his latest painting series, opening on May 21 and running through June 9, 2015.

Jung-woo Ha is a gifted South Korean actor and film director. Influenced by his dad’s art collections early on, initially Ha began his painting as a hobby. To this date however, his artworks have been featured in galleries and art fairs in Seoul, Singapore, Hong Kong, LA and New York including sold-out solo shows. Constantly playing someone else as an actor, the residue of intense emotion requires an outlet; His paintings are served as a means of outlet and meditation for Ha. His painting style is mostly a hybrid of Pop art and Expressionism, similar to graffiti artists of the 80s, inspired by various artists.

Jung-woo Ha is known for his major role in Time (2006), The Chaser (2008), The Yellow Sea (2010), Nameless Gangster: Rules of the TIme (2012), The Berlin File (2013), and Kundo: Age of the Rampant (2014). He has received Best Actor awards in PaekSang Arts Awards (2011, 2013), Golden Cinematography Award (2008), Asian Film Award (2011), Critics Choice Award and Blue Dragon Film Awards (2012).
