Korean artist Mi-Kyung Choi, who goes by the moniker "Ensee," creates digital paintings that blend pastel hues and the delicate touch usually accomplished with traditional materials. Her illustrations, often depicting obscured faces or longing, youthful subjects, adorn books, publications, and other products.
South Korean artist Su-Jeong Nam’s work, in a sense, mirrors the biological processes of her subjects. She begins with the base of color, applied with dry pigments. And then, line by line, vivid portraits of the natural world are grown. Nam says her detailed images are grounded in the familiar, yet highlight “an aspect invisible to most people, through the language of my own artistic process.” The result is metaphysical, a study of the harmony between the natural world and a broader understanding of the universe.
