Angelenos: Sung Jik Yang

22 September - 8 October 2022
Samuele Visentin is proud to present Angelenos - a solo presentation of works by Sung Jik Yang (b. South Korea, 1989). The show comprises 12 works on canvas and is presented at the Georgian townhouse of 3 Fournier Street, London.
Sung Jik Yang paints friends and acquaintances and mostly deals with the portrayal of young people, a sharp sensible generation that represents our present and future. His freely brushed colours take precedence over lines and contours, and emotive strokes are intentionally not blended or smooth, as if to capture the beautiful indeterminacy of youth. The artist cites Alice Neel, Fairfield Porter, and Edouard Manet  as his main influences, primarily for their palette, tenderness, and elegance.
