Kim Gil-hu is a successor of this innovative thought, and treats the Korean contemporary art in a different new way. What he seeks in art is a transition between modernism and classicism, carrying his creation out with introspection experience and lacquer art particular in Oriental culture. His paintings have a splendor of oil as well as an extensity of bas-relief. Above all, he wants to show us a specific sort of spiritual struggle and mental vibration, and an intensive burst of modern minds. To some extent, his paintings represent the new trend of contemporary art: refreshing the piritual world and transcending the visual art, etc. This is because the spiritual richness goes far beyond the formal solemnity while the former one is an urgent demand in modern society.
