The truth and beauty these artists realize will ultimately contribute to our country’s culture and furthermore to the world’s culture.”

This is what the logo represents. Cr. Seoul Institute of the Arts (SeoulArts)
This is a visual symbol representing Seoul Institute of the Arts that plays a crucial role in communicating its identity. The symbol uses sharp curves and a rough outline to incorporate traditional and modern Korean art inspired by the unique pattern of the golden crown of a Baekje queen which aesthetically represents the core values of Korean traditional art. In addition, flames and wings are combined together to visualize the artistic spirit of students who pursue their dreams. The color red represents limitless passion and the ideal of art.
This is what the flames on the Baekje crown look like…
