Iconic Portrait Paintings By Hyung Koo Kang
Although Hyung Koo Kang came late to painting, he is probably one of the most talented in his field. His large-scale portraits of pop-culture icons of our time could not be more realistic. Korean artist Hyung Koo Kang is highly regarded for his intense and seemingly photorealist self-portraits, and paintings of well-known personalities such as Abraham Lincoln, Andy Warhol, Salvador Dali, Vincent Van Gogh, Andy Warhol, among others. Portrait painting aims to depict the visual appearance of a subject, usually a person. Historically, portraiture has often been the purview of the rich and powerful, as memorials and physical expressions of individual greatness and stature. The apparent familiarity of his celebrity subjects and brilliantly executed hyperrealist technique are, however, masks for the fabrications and distortions in his portrait paintings.
