Lorin Gallery is Spotlighting SOCKO's Universe of Characters‘A Whole New World’
SOCKO is a South Korean artist best known for creating wide-eyed characters that beckon with color. Having recently featured in a group exhibition at Lorin Gallery in April, the artist returns to the space for his very own solo exhibition, titled A Whole New World.
Presented in conjunction with League OTO, SOCKO’s practice is centered around the fictional character, Dough and made to imbue a sense of childhood innocence and nostalgia within the viewer. While the compositions may appear flat from a distance, they begin to reveal vivid textures that almost appear three-dimensional on closer inspection.
