I am a Korean Berlin-based painter who is fascinated by how humans and human nature should be portrayed in a contemporary manner. Portrait painting spans across all generations of art styles. It unfolds and reveals social dynamics, ideology and customs of the respective period. In this way, portrait painting is both the most timeless and subjective discipline in art. During the recent past, the possibilities to visually represent ourselves have never been greater. We all draw our own portraits in real time and they are constantly evolving. I investigate this popularization and transformation of portrait culture in the digital world.
