The trio may not be short of potential buyers when their art goes on show at StART, a five-day fair at London"s Saatđưa ra Gallery.

When StART founder David Ciclitira spoke to Ohnlặng, Yooyeon & Lau about selling their art, they were at a loss for how to value them -- or even whether to sell them at all.

With some persuasion, the musicians compromised and agreed to produce 250 limited-edition prints (signed and priced at $500) for the fair, as well as an affordable range of face masks, mugs và tote bags.

The popstars" involvement with StART will undoubtedly attract new eyes khổng lồ their work -- especially in Western markets where they are far from household names. But the relationship is mutually beneficial. Ahead of the fair, they have sầu been excitedly sharing flyers và previewing their art khổng lồ their millions of followers. In June, Ciclitira organized a Seoul exhibition called Korean Eye 2020: Creativity and Daydream, featuring the trio"s artworks, & K-pop"s pulling power helped it reach a "much bigger audience," the collector said, adding: "It"s bringing people inlớn art."

With all the trappings of a K-pop star -- a gigantic ring glinted on his finger as he fielded questions from behind tinted glasses -- Ohnim is not your typical visual artist.
Currently pursuing a solo music career while Winner is on hiatus, he initially began drawing as a hobby. The self-taught 28-year-old, who counts the likes of Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele aao ước his favorite artists, eventually became "more serious" and transitioned lớn painting, occasionally posting his art to lớn his 6 million Instagram followers.

His confronting, highly saturated portraits are a far cry from the upbeat dance tracks his band is known for, featuring contorted figures slumped over canvases và emaciated bodies being lifted inlớn the sky.

"Because I"m a celebrity, I can"t show my emotions. I may be sad sometimes. I may be siông chồng, or I may not feel good about something -- but I need to lớn maintain a certain image. That"s why I called it "Hide" -- khổng lồ avoid showing the public the emotions going through me."
Like artists everywhere, Ohnlặng has had to lớn literally hide away over the last two years, spending much of his time indoors as Covid-19 swept South Korea. While the pandemic put a pin in his touring schedule, the time alone gave sầu him time lớn focus on his art, he said.

With Ciclitira"s help, Ohnim -- along with Yooyeon & Lau -- found a secret studio, away from the prying eyes of their legions of fans. He shared many of his new paintings on social media, completing 20 artworks during the pandemic so far (11 of them will go on display in London).
"I started feeling responsibility và a heavy burden that I need to improve, khổng lồ be more passionate & dedicate myself as an artist," he said.
Referencing the so-called "K-wave" -- a name for rising interest in South Korean music, movies and TV dramas overseas -- Ohnyên believes visual artists will eventually enjoy a similar spotlight. "A part of me wants lớn be leading K-culture and lớn give other people the chance to show their art around the world," he said, adding: "I feel lượt thích I have khổng lồ be one of its leaders lớn perform well."
Ciclitira may be known as an art collector, but he has also enjoyed a prolific career in the music industry. As chairman of events & entertainment group Live sầu Company, he has worked with và promoted the likes of Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson and Tina Turner. He has also worked extensively in South Korea, developing cthua kém liên kết with Ohnim"s label, YG Entertainment, which has managed some of the biggest names in K-pop, including Psy of "Gangphái mạnh Style" fame.
While Ohnyên was already well-established as a musician, one of Ciclitira"s company"s directors, Sonia Hong, recognized his wider artistry after one of his paintings went viral on Instagram, racking up over a million likes.
Herself a music industry veteran, Hong has worked with the StART founder for 14 years và has a close friendship with the managing director of Ohnim"s label. Sensing the rapper"s potential, she contacted the label to lớn see more of his art, which she then showed to curators at Saatchi Gallery. ("We don"t recruit people just because they"re famous," she said.) After they deemed his work, in Hong"s words, "interesting," they moved forward with the collaboration alongside Yeoyeon và Lau.
Ciclitira speaks highly of the trio"s attitude, saying they have sầu "never once thrown in my face" the fact that they"re famous.

"They could do, because if you"ve sầu got 10 million followers và you walk down the street in Seoul with everybody chasing you, that could go to lớn their heads," he said. "But they"re polite, they"re humble, they seek assistance. They genuinely want khổng lồ ask what you feel about their work."
Ciclitira is careful khổng lồ clarify that he và Hong "don"t manage" any of the stars và are instead "helping them," along with other artists showing at StART. Ohnyên maintains his own management, noting that his label has been "very supportive" but "cautious" about his celebrity being "abused."
It remains khổng lồ be seen if Ohnim will be able to lớn attkết thúc his Saatđưa ra debut in London amid scheduling and pandemic restrictions. Ciclitira, who even arranged for the star to lớn be vaccinated in the hope it would improve sầu his chances of visiting the UK, must contover with the star"s other commitments: namely a South Korean reality TV show, which begins shooting around the time of the opening.
When asked whether he"ll attover the art fair"s opening, Ohnyên ổn broke inkhổng lồ English for the first time in the interview. Looking directly into the camera & leaning forwards, he insisted, "I want khổng lồ go there. Really."
