Artist(s): Sang Woo KEEM
Date: 30 Aug - 28 Sep 2012

Sang Woo Keem has pursued a realism painting, which is widely considered the most conventional and oldest expression in a time of non-existent particular way to be 'art'. With a critical eye, a few artists have challenged a realism painting, because preventing damage to originality of image and painting vivid and dramatic scenes on canvas need a great deal of effort and an innate talent. As for his background, such as studying at Russian Academy of Art in St. Petersburg and his effort to combine traditional painting technique and modern expression, a realism painting is possible to be his destiny. 
When examining his artworks, two dimensional image is very exquisite and thoughtful. Unlike abstract painting visualize artist's thought and intention through atypical and irregular gesture and mixed colour, his realism one contains the passing of time, creation, extinction and information of space an objects hides on elaborate line, colour and face. As he said "Extremely fine painting tells everything", his art works with beliefs meet viewer more than expectation. 
In this time, his new exhibition 'Seduced' shows painting works of celebrities who he admires in various techniques under the subtitle 'Celebrities I love'
