The Hyperrealistic Works of Young Sung Kim

Young Sung Kim has been one of my favorite artists since I saw his works exhibited at an arts convention in Seoul when I was in high school. Although we are currently working with abstraction, I think it’s cool to appreciate the other side of the creative spectrum, representational hyperrealism. Apparently, he paints from 9am to midnight every day for at least one year to complete a single piece, which I think is honestly amazing. His works also carry a deeper meaning- one that examines human treatment of small organisms as objects, not living creatures by juxtaposing insects, frogs, fish, etc with manmade objects.
