In 1929, an Indian mystics and philosopher named Tagor have prophesized that a bright red light that shines through the world will
be Korea. We believe that Korean artists will contribute greatly to the world as attested by their current works and strong cultural,
historic, and artistic foundations which they are standing on.
Through the book Freedom, we hope to introduce talented Korean artists to the world with hope that the book itself will find wider
audiences and that the artists continue to create arts that can connect to the world audiences.
