It’s been a while since AM sat down for a chat with Korean artist Jin Young Yu so we thought we would update you with some of her new work since then.

Continuing AM’s tour of Hong Kong, we made a stop at the Art Hong Kong International Art Fair. This vanguard Asian fair brings together top notch exhibitors from over 110 galleries.

It was exciting to have such a collection of premium artwork centralized in one place. Check out all our exclusive coverage after the jump.
