JEON BYEONG SAM [dƷʌn bjʌŋ-sɑm] is a contemporary artist known for his artworks with everyday objects. While he modifies, repeats, and rearranges a large quantity of each object as the methodology of creating works, he revisits social conventions hidden in the ordinary objects. The objects he uses are ordinary and anyone can acquire. But what makes his work unique is the magical moment the ordinary materials are turned into meaningful and special ones when they are repurposed through an artist’s point of view. Jeon studied sculpture at Hongik University, Korea. He holds a master's degree in fine arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and also holds the master's degree in information and computer science from the University of California, Irvine. For the past fifteen years, he has been invited to present his artworks worldwide mainly including: UNESCO (France), SIAF (Japan), SIGGRAPH (USA), ISIMD (Turkey), AsiaGraph (China), ArtBots (Ireland), Salon (Cuba), LIFE (Russia), Netfilmmakers (Denmark), Siggraph ASIA (Singapore), and many more. 

 

전병삼(全丙森)은 평범한 일상의 물건을 활용한 예술작품으로 잘 알려진 대한민국 태생의 현대미술가이다. 적게는 수백개 많게는 수백만개에 이르는 하나의 물건을 변형, 반복, 재배열 하는 과정을 통해 그것에 숨겨진 사회적 관습과 가치를 되돌아본다. 홍익대학교에서 조각을 전공하고, 시카고예술대학(SAIC)에서 미술석사와 캘리포니아대학(UC Irvine)에서 공학석사를 마친 전병삼은 UNESCO(프랑스), SIAF(일본), SIGGRAPH(미국), ISIMD(터키), AsiaGraph(중국), ArtBots(아일랜드), Salon(쿠바), LIFE (러시아), Netfilmmakers(덴마크), Siggraph ASIA(싱가포르) 등을 포함한 120여회의 국제전시에 초대받아 작품을 선보였다.
