Born in South Korea in 1990, Hyangmok Baik pursued his academic career, culminating in a Master’s degree in Fine Art from Hongik University in 2019. Demonstrating a notable commitment to his artistic aspirations, Baik relinquished his stable employment to engage fully in the realm of art. His oeuvre reflects a profound, celebratory perspective on existence, as well as a sense of liberation.
Baik’s distinctive artistic methodology encompasses a fusion of abstract, doodle-inspired figures, coarse brushwork, and unorthodox compositions. This amalgamation establishes an atmosphere of unrestrained freedom on his canvases. Baik’s creations defy established norms and rigid paradigms within the art world. Through his exceptional utilization of a subdued color palette and the deliberate eschewal of narrative projection, Baik’s work invites viewers to experience a sense of repose and maintain an inquisitive disposition as they engage with his art.
