Don't let them in
Don't let them in

20x16

Watercolor, Ink, Color pencil

I lock myself in my own cave, my own box of space to avoid other peopleโ€™s eyes. 

I donโ€™t let anyone in and I donโ€™t try to escape. 

I've been locked inside for too long, so my space is full of molds and spider webs. 

This is my so called "home.โ€

The people who have lost their innocence takes control of others.

Inspired by the book "Animal Farm" by George Owell, I tried to show people in authority and how they use their power unfairly by symbolizing them with animals.

Losing innocence_#2

Watercolor, Color pencil

I tried to show commercialism and how we lose our innocence as we grow up.

I symbolized losing innocence with a merry-go-round. The merry-go-round we happily rode as a child is now just a means to earn money.

This is an observation piece of a flea market in Korea. I went to one of those flea markets that open at nights. I liked the way the lights made people all blurry and indistinguishable. so I tried to express that feeling with acrylic with thicker strokes.

I saw a long line when the new iPhone came out. I was thinking about the waiting we all have to experience in our lives. So I sketched it and finished it later with water color.

Watercolor

When I visited Hong Kong a year ago, I stayed at a youth hostel and when I looked out at the window I thought the view was interesting so I started sketching and took a picture to finish later.I thought this view symbolized the unnoticed parts or people of our world, hidden in the shadows. People pass by with out seeing these parts of the world.

Suppressed

Watercolor, Ink

I tried to express many different hidden feelings and expressions that are suppressed inside a person. 

Although we make expressions in our faces based on circumstances, I wanted to articulate the relationship in the faces.

Faces intersect each other to show how all feeling is related and influencing each other making inevitable expressions.

The tooth in the illustration represents a painful memory.
It almost aches to think of the memory but I can never get over it until I pull it out.
