Charged with emotion and high-contrast palettes, Seung’s realist paintings exude poignant drama. He begins each piece by identifying an idea or emotion he wants to portray. Seung then conveys that sentiment through the facial expressions and body language of his figures. Feelings of depression, disengagement, and hopelessness are conveyed with strength and beauty through the rendering of each subject. “I strive to shine light on the tragic beauties of life,” says Seung. By doing so, he captures powerful notions of the human condition.
