Moon Jongup recently competed as a solo artist in a Korean reality TV show “Peak Time” for the “Worldwide Idol” title, gaining immediate support from fans all over the world.

Join The Shops at Skyview on Thursday, July 20 for a celebration of K-art. Expect live painting showcasing Korean artist Jason H. Lee, a New York-based mixed-media artist originally from Masan, South Korea.

Flexing his mixed media artistry, Lee will use upcycled sneakers from Nike and Adidas to create a bespoke canvas installation featuring portraits of two K-Pop idols, G-Dragon from Big Bang and Lisa from Blackpink. While watching the live painting showcase, customers can get any t-shirt or canvas sneakers purchased from a Skyview retailer personalized by emerging Korean artists, Jihyo Yu, Jin-Yong Choi, and Jongbum Kim.
