Looking at her paintings is like drinking genius from a glass of harmony.
Her works of art and the features of their characters diffuse vibrations of eternity. An eternity that grasps beauty with its arms, but not typical beauty, but rather an indescribable beauty that is disguised as death and radiates the most intense emotions, emotions that make your bones tremble and leave you breathless in a world without time, returning to a world begotten of pure white.

A glance at the rest of his work and you’ll be sure of several things: 1) Kim Sung Jin is one of the best photorealistic painters out there and 2) He’s a bit obsessed with painting lips. Kim Sung Jin graduated from the Hongik University for Fine Art in 2003. This Korean artist works primarily with oils on canvas and his sensually stimulating subject sets him apart from the rest. Painting is easy, even elephants can do it. Painting something so well that it can routinely be mistaken as a photograph is painting on another level. Kim is one of the rare breed of painters that can capture the realism of an image and translate it into an oil and canvas creation without losing an ounce of the sensuality.
Philip Levine enjoys being bald. So much so that instead of hiding it, he turned it into art. These days his closely-shaved heal is his canvas.

Philips head is now iconic around the world and is a source of inspiration to men and women alike suffering from baldness.
Myoung Ho Lee is a young, South Korean artist who has produced an elaborate series of photographs that is simple in concept, nut complex in execution. It poses unusual questions about perception of reality, art, and the environment. Lee simply picks out a likely tree, sets up a white canvas backdrop (with the help of a few assistants of course), and takes a picture. The idea is to mess with the viewers’ perception of depth, reality, and size. According to Lee, “Seeing trees in a refreshing way or restoring the value of trees is to awaken all beings on earth in my work.”.
Watercolors and ink complete the portraits in the paintings of Agnes Cecile’s work. With the illusion of messy splatters, she creates realistic images of people displaying different kinds of expression. She captures the emotion of each individual picture, making the mood perfect for each canvas.
