We already know many idols are multi-talented when it comes to music, whether it's with singing, dancing, composing, producing and so much more under their belts. 

There's also some idols with spectacular visual art skills that need to be acknowledged. Feast your eyes on some of the works from these idols who are also talented visual artists!

MINO (Winner)

When he's not rapping or making his own music, he's working on creative projects that range from doodles to fully-fledged art installations. He posts lots of his sketches on his Instagram, so it's worth following for artistic inspiration.

Seulgi (Red Velvet)

Seulgi's mentioned that she loves drawing in her spare time, and she's even shown off her skills on television - check out when she drew Girls' Generation's Red Velvet on reality show Daily Taeng9Cam to see it for yourself.

Key (SHINee)

Key's got a keen art for the artistic, whether in his fashion choices or artworks. He even drew the album cover for SHINee's album The Misconceptions of Us.
