BIOGRAPHY

Jeongmin (Jeong Min) is an emerging Korean hyperrealist painter, based in Vancouver BC. He graduated from Emily Carr University of Art and Design in 2020, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts. In addition, Jeong has trained professionally with hyperrealist artists in Korea, such as Jeong-Hae Kwang.  He was the recipient of the 2019 Richard Alm Scholar Award from the Federation oJeongmin works primarily in oils, usually painting still lifes, and sometimes large scale portrait works. Much of his work pursues the idea of perfectionism and explores the ability of excessive detail in lending power to, and redefining the value of, the subjects he chooses to paint.

 

Jeongmin's work consists primarily of photorealistic oil paintings, the "Trash Series" is an exploration of beautified trash; a commentary on the ecological crisis as brought on by modern consumerist culture.

 

Another of Jeongmin's series is "The Gift Series", featuring Trompe-l'oeil paintings, which explore the excesses of gift giving culture as represented by depictions of gift-wrappings of great variety.
