Hyunjin Bek Biography

Born in 1972, the South Korean artist experiments with various genres of the arts including fine art, music, film and literature, has garnered attention for bringing forth paintings and drawings that reveal his artistic sensitivity and ability to use multi layers of visual languages. To Bek, painting is one of the ways he actualizes his steadfast aesthetic views and interests. Avoiding any use of specific narratives or schematic compositions, he composes the canvases withspontaneous riddling figures, brushstrokes and brilliant colors.His intuition-driven drawings of the fleeting moment portray the mysterious tension between artistic performance and the ultimate futility of its meaning.
