Yang Jong Yong 2018, Oil on canvas

10.6 W x 8.4 H x 0.1 in

Artist Yang Jong-Yong, who has drawn attention for his impressive work of drawing green moss, paints mosses on various kinds of artifacts, whose composition and color are also equipped with surrealistic mystique as well as modern sophistication. The green moss, which is meticulously expressed with a detailed brush touch, is a material intended to show the natural beauty of man-made objects and other natural creatures. As such, his works symbolically show that communication between people is an important part of modern society through natural harmony between artificial and natural objects.
