Born in 1972, Her Su‐young studied painting at Seoul National University and at the Tianjin College of Fine Arts, China. He was on the faculty of Jeonju University and lecturer at Won‐kwang University. Having worked in China, Mr. Her currenlty lives and works in Korea.
Fusing literati elements with a contemporary fluidity, Her Suyoung brings a remarkable, exciting freshness to the classic landscape genre.
One detects in Her’s work the influences of his inspiration Wang Meng (c. 1308‐1385), as well as elements of Northern Song style; However, Her infuses the grandeur and drama of monumental landscape with a supple expressivity that is distinctly modern.
