While studying in France and also upon the first few years following his return to Korea, Dae Ho Guk produced abstract color paintings where different color dimensions were placed in parallel. After this phase, he gradually moved on to presenting delicate and subtle 'in-between colors'. The works were based on his strenuous exploration of 'colors' as a connecting link.
After graduating from Seoul National University with a degree in Painting, he went to École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts and also studied plastic arts in the University of Paris 8. Since 1995, he has been active in the exhibition circuit, both with solo and group exhibitions. He won the 'This Year's Young Artist' award given by the Paris' Galleries Association and sponsored by École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in 1996. In 1997, he had the honor of winning the Grand Prize at Novembre à Vitry. His works have been purchased by the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, the Gyeonggi Museum of Art, the Busan Museum of Art and the Vitry Municipal Gallery in France.
