The 15th Intangible Cultural Heritage of Busan, Gwon Yeong-gwan, is a Buddhist cremator who clearly proves his relationship with the Buddhist monk. His father, Kwon Jeong-du, was transferred from Yang Wan-ho, a great Buddhist mother who left many Buddhist paintings in Gyeongsang-do, including Busan, in the early 20th century, and produced outstanding Buddhist paintings and sculptures nationwide, while Kwon Yeong-gwan was transferred from his father again.

It was first introduced in 1962 and has been engaged in the production of tangs for 46 years in Busan. In 1972, he won the Excellence Prize for painting in the Buddhist Painting section of the 3rd Buddhist Art Exhibition hosted by the Jogye Order of Korean Buddhism, and won the Best Prize in the 4th edition in 1973, and the 5th edition in 1974, the following year, he won the Special Prize.

In addition to Buddhist temples in Busan such as Beomeosa and Samgwangsa Temple, there are more than 50 of his major works enshrined in Buddhist temples across the countrywide. In his writings, eight passers-by are currently working to pass on the function of Buddhist painting production.
