Fine Art Friday: Kwangho Shin

South Korean artist Kwangho Shin works in a dark and visceral style that reminds me of Jim Dine drawings from the Glyptotek, Frank Auerbach drawings, and Francis Bacon paintings. The bulk of the work is rendered with oil and acrylic paints and some scratched surfaces worked into the blurry, movement-based images. Shin studied Fine Art at Keimyung University and continues to produce figurative work with a mix of distorted, abstract forms and some more textural but recognizable Asian models. Check more of the work out here.
