SIKYUNG SUNG

BB&M NOW REPRESENTING SIKYOUNG SUNG

 
READ IN KOREAN
 
BB&M is pleased to announce that Sikyung Sung has joined the gallery. Born in 1991 and based in Seoul, Sung is among the most noteworthy emerging Korean painters today, gaining increasing attention with his distinctive modes of visual expression.
 
Sikyung Sung produces abstract paintings that showcase free-spirited brushstrokes and bold contrasts of color. Rather than devising concrete forms, the artist pursues a pure visual language through recurring, aleatory trajectories of the brush, akin to the traces left by a Zamboni on an ice rink (hence the title of his recent works), resulting in an exquisite melding of intersecting patterns on the canvas and expressive mark making arising from momentary intuition.
 

Born in 1991 and based in Seoul, Sung holds a BFA from Hongik University, Seoul, and an MFA from the Seoul National University of Science and Technology. In addition to his solo exhibition Exit Exit at the non-profit Art Space Heyong/Shift (Seoul, 2019), he has been included in group exhibitions such as Two Tu (P21 and Whistle, Seoul, 2022); Light and Crystalline (ONE AND J. Gallery, Seoul, 2020); and Your Life is Abstract (Art Space 3, Seoul, 2019).
