Soil artist  Jo-Do Joong   

Dojoong jo is a pioneer in painting techniques using clay.

He developed a style that challenged the norms of art, known as "Earth Painting." Dojoong's work, which blossoms from inspiration and experimentation, aims to return viewers to nature, as he believes that soil conveys a natural eternity to humanity.

The connection with nature experienced through his paintings is vivid. This is because we can recognize materials through color, texture, smell, and temperature.

Since soil is the home of everyone's heart, these familiar elements evoke a universal experience and nostalgia for the homeland.

Earth painting, Soilart gallery

Soil is the source of all life and the hometown of our hearts. However, modern people who are accustomed to asphalt and concrete are forgetting the existence and meaning of soil.

Soil is our motherhood, our living ground, and a resting place to return to when we die. From the soil life springs up, and it spreads its branches, blossoms, and bears fruit without haste. return to the ground So the soil is nature, humility, faith, and waiting.


The artist says that there is no nation on earth that will reject this soil because there is no human being who does not know that ‘soil contains the mother’s heart’ through any ethnic group in ‘America, Africa, Europe, or Asia’.

So, I made the most original work with the most Korean and most pan-human materials ,

and I said that I wanted to paint a picture that moves people like the unchanging soil.

Artist Statement*

Beautiful paintings are great works. However, it is not a work of art or a cultural property.

I think a work of art, first, must have originality, and secondly, no one should be able to imitate it.
