As the history seems to repeat itself the United States of America and minorities are yet again being persecuted, I wanted this work to relay a message to all minorities under oppression to be bold, courageous, and uniquely yourself in spite of your instinct telling you to "blend in with the crowd, keep your head down, and survive." For it is moments of crisis like this that can provide opportunity for courageous minds to change the world.

Getting to Know Seung

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.
