About "Red Bean Paste"

Red Bean Paste(RBP) is a collective gathered to craft dreams and share stories through sensory landscapes. The name "Red Bean Paste" draws inspiration from the rich tradition of red beans used in East Asian countries to create a wide array of delectable sweets, soups, and drinks. This simple ingredient symbolizes the diverse possibilities and loving energy found in the collective's work.

Within this collective, three visionary artist-designers collaborate to weave intricate tales and explore the boundaries of art and culture:

Yesum Yoon breathes life into objects of various scales and creature-like forms, weaving them together to create a captivating visual storytelling of her imaginary landscape.

Shin Yang, a Taiwanese artist, is at the heart of the critical examination of cultural identity, decolonization, and geo-politics.

ShiSoH is an artist and a designer who delves into the intricacies of daily life and the underlying social mechanisms that shape our world.

Together, these three individuals infuse their work with their unique perspectives, drawing from shared cultural backgrounds and a belief in the power of storytelling.
