Cheolwon Chang has been intrigued by conditions that create a pattern from the proportion of geometric shapes or an irregular object/phenomenon, and has dedicated his artistic career to visualizing things beyond the realm of corporeality. Chang received his bachelor’s degree in painting from Chung-Ang University and completed an exchange program at the Fine Art department of England's Nottingham Trent University. Beginning with the solo show 'Architecture of Illusion’ in 2014, he has participated in multiple group exhibitions and was awarded by the PUBLIC ART Magazine – South Korea’s leading fine arts magazine – as well as the Seoul Art Foundation. In 2016, Chang was chosen as the third class of the Paris Lee Ungno Residence, and later in 2018, he won the 'ACCELERATE Award' from CERN (Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire, European Organization for Nuclear Research) and completed the following residency at the institute. At CERN, Chang examined experiments on proton collision, particle detectors, and antimatter. The world of atoms consists all matter, and Chang aimed to deepen his study on how the atoms affect the world visible to the eyes, leading him to participate in the Artience Daejeon residency. Korea Research Institute of Standards and Science (KRISS), a partner of the Artience residency program, develops the technology to measure standard physical units for mass, time, energy, and on, and inspired by the photon frequency-related Planck constant, Chang developed a body of works that redefine the standard for colors.
