Artist Spotlight: Sungwon

It’s no surprise that Korean-based illustrator Sungwon also lists “fairy tale writer” in their roster of accomplishments. His (or her?) drawings have a child-like aesthetic that’s one part storybook and one part horror story. All his pieces have straight-forward titles like “Girl hanging” or “A Late Night,” but Sungwon insists that there’s a reason for his vagueness: “There are some handful amount of people wondering and yearning to now (sic) the meanings of what they see from my works. I tend to hope that they’d imagine their own stories from them. So, therefore, my drawings only have the least amount of info, which is the titles.” In other words, he’s a storyteller who doesn’t tell stories, which is simply genius when you think about it. If you’re interested in buying prints, swing by his Society6 page.
