Melancholic portraits by Sungsoo Kim

Posted on Jan 03, 2019


South Korean artist Sungsoo Kim like no other, can channel sadness and melancholy. The artist was born in the Chinese city of Busan, however he works and lives in Seoul. His works are highly appreciated and are a part of collections of many Korean political institutions. Deprived of color, faded characters seem to be plunged into permanent sadness, which in time seems to even erase their special features.
