Illusion Artist Dain Yoon Uses Her Body as a Canvas

To see more of Dain’s art, follow @designdain on Instagram.

Dain Yoon (@designdain) believes her body art mirrors the way people experience the world. “People live in illusions,” says the 24-year-old artist from Seoul, South Korea. “People see everything in their own subjective way. For example, when people see the sky, they think the sky is just blue. But actually, the color of the sky is composed of so many colors. My illusions distort reality and perception.” Dain describes her elaborate makeup as a form of painting, and she’s been using her body as a canvas for the past three years.

'Comfort Woman' Memorial Statues, A Thorn In Japan's Side, Now Sit On Korean Buses
Statues symbolizing the World War II sex slaves abused by Japanese soldiers have appeared this year on Korean city buses — including on a bus line whose doors open right in front of Japan's embassy.

I’m in DC at NPR HQ this week fill-in hosting All Things Considered. But before I came home to DC, we did some extra reporting in South Korea and Japan. Here’s a look at the latest salvo in the ongoing tussle between the two countries, over history issues.

JUST BECAUSE I LIKE KPOP THAT DOESNT MEAN I FETISHISE KOREANS

I am so sick of talking about a cute boy or girl and having someone say “they aren’t korean tho?” Or hearing “so you’re only attracted to Koreans?”

NO BITCH BC IM NOT A DISGUSTING PIECE OF SHIT THAT FETISHES A CERTAIN GROUP OF PEOPLE BECAUSE I LIKE SOMETHING THAT COMES FROM THAT GROUP OF PEOPLE FUCK OFF PLEASE AND THANK YOU

(Here are just two examples of my FRIENDS doing this from just this week. It happens more in person)

If you’re one of those people who fetishise Koreans because of kpop you can exit to the left and never come back.
