Imagine what it would be like if villains from the 007 movie series were presented as Oriental artworks.

This is an exhibition that features the various characters from the movie series. However, there are no signs of James Bond, and only his enemies are visible.

[Interview : Lee Mun-ju, Curator] "The exhibition is about villains in the 007 movie franchise, which has a long history. It will present what characters scared people the most by the generation."

Son Dong-hyun is the very artist responsible for these unique works of art. He has made a name for himself by combining his knowledge of Oriental art with modern mainstream icons.

[Interview : Lee Mun-ju, Curator] "Son Dong-hyun used "jeonsinsajo," an Oriental art technique, to portray fictional characters from the 007 franchise."

Son Dong-hyun has meticulously brought everyone to life, from Blofeld, the most famous of Bond's enemies, to Electra King of the 19th movie in the franchise.

[Interview : Lee Mun-ju, Curator] "This is a portrait of Dr. No, the antagonist of a 1962 James Bond movie and the very first of many others throughout the franchise. He wears a prosthetic hand, which is highlighted in the portrait. The fur on the chair also stands out, as it was created with an extremely fine brush. Such works are possible only after practicing and researching characters extensively."

However, the mere sights of the villains are not enough. Anyone paying attention to each piece can feel the characters' evilness, too.

[Interview : Hwang In-gyeong, Visitor] "All of the portraits are those of villains. It was quite impressive and scary."
