Kim Byungkwan, a fine art painter and digital artist from Seoul, Korea, aims to express something very simple through his artwork. “I am trying to bring out strangeness from familiarity (visual habit).”, he says in the artist statement on his personal website.
He, therefore, tries to extrapolate from familiar visions those habits that brings an everyday feeling to be unique. However, by doing this one shuts down all the other possibilities, as the routine habits stop us from having adventures and checking out the wonders out there.
“My work is trying to destroy, tear up, and reconstruct this habitual vision so that our vision can be expended to other images.
I have strong faith in my work that my personal behavior may lead us “strangeness within habitual vision off from the track.”, Kim says when describing his work.
He will then exploit it in the synthetic definition of “Strangeness within habitual vision off from the track.”
