In the depiction of the figure, the technique of Yongchul Kim can be seen. His brushstrokes wrap themselves around the figure's transparent body like scraps of skin, pointing to its transience. In the interplay with the dramatic coloring and expressive brushwork, Yongchul Kim addresses the existential questions of humanity and the eternal search for reality. Yongchul Kim lives and works in Stuttgart.
