I really dig this Blue Spring Vol. 267 painting by South Korean artist, Ko Byung Jun. It’s watercolor on paper and so so intriguing. The painting immediately draws you in. He has a lot of portraits like this and they are all fabulous.
He says that through SNS, he meets strangers in the world. He expresses the characters through watercolor painting techniques that emphasize randomness.
He doesn’t like painting in the classic style.
He uses watercolor techniques which highlight unrefined drawing and coincidence,
I try to express my anxious and lonely emotions on behalf of various characters. As I did,
the portraits expressed in that way always stare at the world quietly as if they were tired of a fairytale-like reality,
containing incomplete, anxious, and unknown sadness.
Ko tries to reveal the loneliness and the horrors of existence of people living in the modern era through their incomplete appearance that embraces the artist’s own inner self.
Ko is in the Saatchi gallery. He lives and works in South Korea. If you dig this as much as I do, here is my special link to purchase.
