Shin Jong Sik ~ Watercolor painter

Watercolorist Shin Jong Sik is famous for expressing clean, transparent colors and his still life paintings express colorful, dignified and deep feeling. Taking flowers, dishes and hemp cloth as materials, he does not compose as they are seen but recomposes with new ideas. His excellent talent of lighting the hue reaches the vivid expression of emphasizing points of main materials according to hue and the background of his paintings are usually left blank. Delicacy and boldness are coexisting in his composition, raising affections of appreciators. Shin Jong Sik paints exclusively with Mission Gold Watercolors, a new premium line of watercolors distributed in the U.S. and Canada by Martin F. Weber Company.

Minjae Lee, 1989 | Pop Surrealism painter

Minjae Lee is a young South Korean painter and illustrator, whose work expresses a semi-disturbing inner tension that is tough to ignore, even if you feel that you’d like to. It draws you in with its powerful colors, halting imagery and clever juxtaposition of beauty, innocence and fragility with brash, loud and aggressive.
What characterizes his work overall is drama. The ethereal females that populate most of his work exude a dark, organic tension, and it seems that even the brightest marker colors do not quite manage to save them from some sort of looming peril.
