What is Minhwa?

Korean Traditional Folk Art, Minhwa, is a colorful painting that was popular from the 17th to 19th centuries until the end of the Joseon era.

Many were painted by anonymous artists and shared among commoners to enrich the everyday lives of people in Korea.

Free from formal constraints, Minhwa expresses one's honest desire and good wishes for others in bright colors, humor, and hope.

While evoking profound empathy and familiarity in the observer, it is an invaluable part of Korea's cultural heritage.
