Artist Uses Short Strokes to Create Complete Drawings

Artist Seong Jin Kim's beautiful black and white illustrations are composed of quick, short strokes that merge together into amazing scenes. His work is a beautiful blend of thin black ink with a stark white background. Up close, Kim's style appears to be rough and incomplete. However, the broader picture proves to be an extremely complex, emotionally-charged image that conveys a powerful story of loneliness and isolation.

In a very minimalist fashion, the Seoul-based artist achieves incredible details in each piece, developing the lights and shadows until the monochromatic figures appear ready to jump off of the page and into 3D form. The drawings communicate a sense of melancholy and viewers may become curious to know more about what hides behind the subjects' eyes.
