  • Information
    Introduction
    Artist Lee Jung-seob is known for his paintings, reminicent of Fauvism, including one called “White Ox.” During the Korean War, he spent a year as a refugee in Seogwipo with his Japanese wife and two sons in a small leased house, where he produced many masterpieces.

    Although the stay was temporary, it was one of the happiest times for Lee and certainly the most productive. Recognizing his importance, Seogwipo City purchased the house and turned it into the Lee Jung-seob Memorial Hall. The street in front of his house, which he walked day and night, was renamed Lee Jung-seob Street. Lee Jung-seob Gallery is just behind the restored house. The gallery houses over 8 masterpieces by Lee Jung-seob and 52 works by modern Korean painters that were donated to Seogwipo City by Lee Ho-jae (CEO of Gana Art).
