H. Miranda’s Mixed Media Works Visits Seoul
Paraguay Amb. Franco Arranges Show for Its Artist
Paraguayan artist Hernan Miranda

Ambassador Federico Alberto Gonzalez Franco of Paraguay Embassy in Seoul hosted an exhibition of Mr. Hernan Miranda on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Paraguay and South Korea on Sept. 1-15, 2006.

A total of 20 Mr. Miranda's works of art are on exhibition at Gallery Bellarte (Tel: 739-7333) in Sagan-dong 45, Jongno-gu, central Seoul under the title of "Lo Real y Lo Virtual."

Among his "Mixed Media" works is "Tuhon (투혼)" or "Fighting Spirit" in which the Paraguayan artist tried to express the fighting spirit of the Korean soccer players in 2002 World Cup. South Korean players surprised the world by advancing to the quarterfinal during the World Cup game.

The painter used various materials including wood, paper, canvas, and net to conceptualize his ideas with such motives as fruits and human body.

Through his works of art Mr. Miranda shows the double factors which come from the combination of indigenous Paraguayan culture and Spanish culture, experts say.

Paraguayan Ambassador Franco hosted a reception for the exhibition opening at 5 p.m. on Sept. 1, 2006 at the gallery.
