Young Chun is a Korean artist based in the U.S. best known for his paintings which depict beautiful and mesmerizing portraits of women with romantic looks in their eyes.
‘My art is a fabrication of reality, the way I see it in my mind. Music, culture, childhood memories, and the people in the environment that surrounds me influence it. When I pass by strangers or a situation taking place, my mind begins to create stories about them, imagining their lives, the triumphs, the tragedies, and the happiness or sadness they experience, which becomes the inspiration for my artwork. But, there is truth in my art. It comes from the way I am feeling at the time I am constructing a painting, and it is the feeling I am trying to convey.’ – Young Chun
