Byeon Sang-byeok was a painter fro the late Korean Joseon Dynasty (1392-1910). He worked as a portrait painter at the court of King Yeongjo and later as Hyeongam, the magistrate of a small province. Alongside portraits, Byeon also painted beautiful, realistic animal scenes primarily of cats and chickens. The delicate brushwork of the Guksu (master artist) was already legendary during his lifetime and the people nicknamed him Byeon Goyang (Bye on Cat) and Bye on Dak (Byeon rooster). In Korean culture cats offer protection from evil spirits.
