Yeongdeok, South Korea-based artist KwangHo Shin is not shy about using color and has an original take on the portrait.
As curator Myung-Jin You describes, “[The] complexity of human emotions, which is hard to be defined in one word, is left as momentary traces on the empty space, after the long agony of the artist’s inner side.” Following this, “the fear of blank space is collapsed, and [Shin’s] inner side’s fear and the ecstasy . . . coincide”
You can watch some of his process videos on YouTube and see the actual magnitude of his canvases.
