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.

    Artist Statement

    I am an self taught oil painter striving to shine light on the tragic beauties of life. My work can be described as impressionistic realism, with figures as the prime subject matter. My intention when painting isn't to capture the scene or the figure perfectly but to use it as a conduit to personify and portray emotions.

    Your new work titled "A Moment" is stunning. Works like these, realistic depictions of people painted with style and sensitivity is exactly the kind of art I yearn to call my own. Someday. Your work is beautiful and I so appreciate your talent.
