KANG SEUNG YOON is set to debut once again! This time as the Photographer YOO YEON set to exhibit his art at the 8th edition of Annual START Art Fair at the Saatchi Gallery, London on October 13-17, 2021, along with paintings by Mino as Ohnim & Henry Lau in a K-Pop Art Wave special.
Two of his photographs titled “Solitude” & “Vision” have been shared so far. Isn’t it wonderful that what started as a hobby and a instagram account @y8n_l8ks_at to share with us his vision, has not become a professional venture! ❤
