Painter Won Seok Chang

Painter Won Seok Chang is a South Korean artist living in Philadelphia. This recently graduated artist makes his work as if falling into a trance; the images, spaces and colors serve as to develop his visual experience into a complex and personal language. We like this about his art. It creates a strange and mysterious world, similar to artists like Neo Rauch. Chang tells us that the narrativity in his paintings relates to his real life. He says: ‘My own visual lexicon radiates an ambiguous feeling and attitude towards the world that I live in.’ We are curious where his work is headed. We keep you posted!
