Grotesque Portrait Paintings

Kim Byungkwan painting colour abstract woman portrait

The desire to bring out the strangeness in the everyday is what drives South Korean painter Kim Byungkwan to make art. This manifests itself in off-kilter portraits where the normal features of a human face are washed away with a series of wild brushstrokes. Colour is another important driving force behind his work, as each painting is dominated by a main background colour.
