Minhwa, which refers to Korean folk painting, is a traditional folk art from the Joseon era. It is usually produced by itinerant or unknown artists for daily use under the theme of the daily life of the ordinary people.

Minhwa is a storyteller. By watching Minhwa, we can not only read the story of an artist, but also story of a family, a society, and a country. Every element, every genre is acting as a hint, telling us what kind of story the picture is going to tell. Korean Cultural Center in Hong Kong is honored to invite Ms. Young Ae Lee from <Art Minhwa> to be the speaker of the talk. She will be the 'interpreter' of Minhwa, interpreting the story behind Minhwa.


民畫會講故事。我們不但能從民畫中讀出畫家的故事,更能讀懂一個家庭、一個社會、一個國家的故事。畫中每個元素、每個種類都是一個提示,告訴我們畫中故事的題材。駐香港韓國文化院很榮幸邀請 <Art Minhwa> 的Young Ae Lee女士作為本次講座講者。她將作為民畫的'解說員',為大家解讀民畫背後的故事。
