STANDOUT ARTISTS

Cao Yun

China


Sculptor Cao Yun (b.1986) holds a master’s degree in sculpture from Tsinghua University. The artist often sits in the studio watching her sculptures in order to gradually discover their inner soul. This in turn dictates how the piece is formed.

 

For Cao, when she first graduated from the college, the horse represented the aspirations of youth and the evolution of their thoughts as they enter adulthood. As Cao evolved as an artist, so did her creative experiences. At first her attention was focused on family and social problems, then on people and nature. Today, Cao has laid to rest all the burden of creation, to return to the simplest form of modeling language, allowing inspiration to take her into new directions.


Yang Okkyung

South Korea


Yang Okkyung (b.1966) is a widely acclaimed marker artist who has pioneered marker art as a new genre. Yang graduated from Korea University of Fine Art in 2004, Yonsei University of law in 2010, Yonsei graduate of law and now Hongik graduate of Fine Art.

 

A member of the Korean Find Arts Association, and the Director of Jade Flower Gallery, Yang's detailed and memerizing works are drawn with pencil, pen and copic marker on papier fait avec l'écorce de mûrier (mulberry paper). Her works are widely exhibited and collected in Korea, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Dubai and France.



Akira Ishiguro

Japan


For Akira Ishiguro (b.1974), who has exhibited at many international art fairs, marble epitomises nature's beauty, transcribing ‘the line extracting the law of nature’ like sutras filling a canvas. It is also a symbol of wealth and power as seen in the marble covered buildings of the Roman Empire.

 

Akira Ishiguro's Marble painting series are drawn precisely to reproduce the real item. By doing this, Ishiguro echoes 19th century European ‘faux finish’ techniques and attempts to consider the ‘truth in the false’. In his recent series of Marblesque paintings, Ishiguro adopted a technique using ‘metamorphism by heat’, which multiplies the marble-generation process in creating more abstract impressionist works.
