Do you enjoy looking at things from a different perspective? If you do, and you're in London, how about hopping down to Saatchi Gallery for the upcoming Korean Eye 2012 exhibition?
"Korean Eye" is a cultural project sponsored by Standard Chartered Bank, promoting contemporary Korean artists and their works. Its next destination is London, just in time for the summer Olympics.
If you are into art, you should definitely make time to enjoy fresh dose from Korean artists who have been hand picked by Saatchi Gallery curators after reviewing works from more than 2,000 Korean artists. Korean Eye exhibitions have been held throughout the world's major cities such as New York, Seoul, Singapore and Abu Dhabi over the last four years, attracting more than 700,000 visitors.

Nigel Hurst, Chief Executive of the Saatchi Gallery said, "I am thrilled and delighted to collaborate with 'Korean Eye' and Standard Chartered. It is a wonderful opportunity to introduce new contemporary art to London, especially during the Olympics. Korean Eye is set to play a key role in shaping our understanding of the work of this group of artists, and provide a gateway to the wider culture of their homeland, because they have absorbed many aspects of contemporary life in Korea and chosen very individual ways to communicate this; showing extraordinary talent and energy".
Kim Hyun Soo, Breik
The upcoming exhibition will emphasize how Korean artists are giving a fresh take on contemporary art, using new materials and expressing themselves through well known methods or more innovative techniques.
