“In meinen Bildern drücke ich meine Erfahrungen aus. Diese Erfahrungen muss ich natürlich erst mal machen. Ich reise sehr gern, lerne gern neue Menschen kennen, lasse mich von der Natur inspirieren. Ich habe mich auch immer schon sehr für Geschichte und Archäologie interessiert. Wenn ich in Korea bin, besuche ich zum Beispiel immer historische Gebäude und schaue mir die Materialien und Farben an, die dort verwendet wurden. Ich will wissen, wie sie verarbeitet wurden, wie sie nach Jahrhunderten aussehen.” – Wonkun Jun
