Milano di art contemporary Korean Contemporary Art Week.

A contemporary art contemporary in the heart of Milan". Dedicated to the Korea Folk Painting Association with more than a hundred protagonists of contemporary Minhwa art, the event takes place from July 7 to 13. After last year's exhibition, in which one hundred and twenty contemporary artists with different styles were proposed, this year's exhibition focuses on popular painting in the traditional style of Korea of our time, which is still performed according to the principles and guidelines of the seventeenth century.

From the very beginning, Minhwa art has depicted in painting, on paper or on canvas, animals and figures from folk mythology, scenes from everyday life and objects such as symbols of happiness and well-being. His artists often moved back and forth between the cities of worship for local events, where they stopped to carry out work on behalf of nobles or ordinary people.

At that time like today the most frequently illustrated topics are animals like the tiger and the carp symbolize power and/or success. Also birds and pets, such as the cat and the cock or even the carp, a very common figure and one of the most popular of all time, have apotrophic and favorable functions.

A great merit in the revival of Minhwa art goes to the Korea Folk Painting Association, the largest in the artistic field of Korea. It was founded in 1995 to unite and represent artists who wish to continue and reinterpret the Minhwa genre in a contemporary style, leading to a real movement. Korea Folk Painting maintains relations with the South Korea Ministry of Education, which promotes the exhibition and cultural projects with the aim of protecting, promoting and passing on this ancient tradition.

The sad historical event of the Korean War (1950) ordered the demise of this tradition, which was only reborn in the 80s of the last century. It was founded in 1995 to unite and represent artists who wish to continue and reinterpret the Minhwa genre in a contemporary style, leading to a real movement.
