Seoul-based artist Jiwoon Pak illustrates dreamy atmospheres with black-eyed figured in the muted tones. Her digital paintings are inspired by Korean folk art that consists of paintings of mythical figures and other objects in a specific plain, straightforward and naive style.
The works of her involve a magical dimension. There is a sense of mystery with innocent, absent-gaze characters. They explore the irrational realms of existence, often focusing on the ambivalence of life, of feelings and various experiences. She paints their own imaginary world with natural elements. Her works are hiding deeper meanings behind everything.
