Wooh Nayoung is an illustrator known for painting western characters wearing hanbok, Korea’s traditional clothing and taking old Korean genre paintings and reinterpreting them with a modern twist. Due to popular demand, following Wooh Nayoung’s recent Q&A at Foyles, we will be presenting a whole K-Seminar with the illustrator at the Korean Cultural Centre UK.
Wooh’s collaboration with Disney and Marvel captured global attention. When she reinterpreted the characters of Thor: Ragnarok through old Korean paintings of traditional wrestling, the Bruce Banner actor Mark Ruffalo famously tweeted the illustration saying ‘where can I get one?’. Having previously majored in Korean paintings, Wooh will talk about her inspirations and life working in the digital era.
