Biography / Kwon Kyung-Yup

Born in Seoul in 1975, Kwon Kyung-Yup is a Korean artist who is renown for her intricate techniques that go into her paintings. Firstly, by taking a photograph, she encapsulated all the emotions and then begins creating her painting via oil on canvas. Kwon Kyung-Yup’s works are featured in the URBAN NATION 2018 exhibition, ‘UN-DERSTAND The Power of Art as a Social Architect’.

Graduating in both her bachelors and masters in Painting at Sejong University, Seoul, Kwon Kyung Yup’s art reveals a world of physicality and ambivalence. Her art is approached in such as surreal style in that her images are depicted as inhuman and flawless beings, as if the human body is a vessel for recollections of trauma and pain. Her artworks usually feature her subjects wrapped in bandages, a visual depiction of the emotional wounds that’s the body suffers from and yet, as the same time, shows humanity within the subject.

Her work has reached galleries from across the globe, from her home country of South Korea to Germany, The Netherlands and The United States.
