Byoung Il Sun is in our first Poster Monday spot of the day with the poster “Barrier-free sky”. Byoung was born in 1958, received a Ph.D. in Visual communication Design from the Hongik University. He has been working since 20 years as a professor at the Namseoul University at the Visual Communication Design Department (south Korea).

The poster “Barrier-free sky” is related with the conflict between Palestine and Israel. It talks about the problematic perspective of life Palestinians have. The poster conveys a message of hope for the people from Gaza who wants to live under a bright blue sky. It was when Israel was bombing Gaza indiscriminately that Byoung decided to create this poster. “The news about children being slaughtered was the most profound motive, I hope to have an impact with this poster in the name of peace and reflection, not just as a temporary solution but a lasting one” says Byoung.
