Hyun: Yayaya - Art Collector

South Korean born Hyun is a New York based artist who repurposes and refines found objects and everyday cultural ephemera, assigning them new idiosyncratic meanings. Hyun creates sculptural assemblage from discarded mechanical parts, found objects and rock and roll memorabilia, reconfiguring and manipulating these sourced elements. The objects produced for Yayaya evoke an improvisational feeling that closely captures the living streets and situations from which they originate in New York City. This impression is heightened when signature phrases are cut, engraved, painted or placed on select assemblages.
