For a moment, think about why our daily lives are the subject of painting. Whether cynical or humorous, everyday scenes can be profound mirrors of our societies. South Korean artist Youngseon You interrogates this idea in her oil on canvas paintings, seeking to translate the energy of her thoughts into visual language. For Youngseon, it is in the smallest, everyday moments where we can find the greatest meaning in life.
Youngseon’s work is influenced by South Korean folk art and the french technique of pointillism. She works with pattern and texture in silhouette on double print screens to create her vividly colored, expertly crafted pieces. A master of spatial orientation and figure study, Youngseon is as technically skilled as she is aesthetically creative and unique.
The artist has a Bachelors and Masters degree in fine art. She has exhibited her works in several impressive group and solo exhibitions in Seoul, and has reached global audiences through exhibitions in Paris and New York City.
