The Exploration

This piece can be called the self-portrait of myself. It represents the cultural element of myself. Every element within the painting are taken from Korean culture, while the painting style is unusual in Korean paintings is to represent the influence of the western culture of media and my life in the United States. Also, how the three figures are drawn in a character style shows how I am not too serious of a person. The red-haired figure on the left represents my passionate side, which is when I am serious. The green-haired figure on the right represents my vitality, creativity, and curiosity. The purple figure in the middle represents the spirituality that keeps me balanced. The figure in the middle is holding a pouch that has the traditional Chinese character written “luck”, which I believe is the source of my constant thankfulness.
