Artist of the moment…..Ran Hwang

Ran Hwang was born in South Korea in the year 1960 and is an awesome contemporary artist who uses items including, sequins, buttons, beads , and pins. Her process is quite simple. She finds an image she likes, projects it onto the wall, traces it, then fills in the shapes with thousands of pins or buttons or whatever she chooses for her medium.  Her work tries to get the viewer to look at the many thousands of people that make up a mass movement, from the bead that signifies one person, to a mass of beads symbolizing a movement.

Hwang really enjoys the meditation part of the process, that of filling in the outline a given medium.

Ran Hwang found her artistic style after seeing the events of 911 in the United States. She uses thousands of whatever medium she chooses to represent people in her society.

For her artistic education she attended the School of Visual Arts located in New York city. For her masters degree  she went back to South Korea and attended the Graduate School of Arts Chung-Ang University Seoul, Korea.
