Yesora Artist Profile
I am a New York based artist, Yesora Song (1996, Korea) who graduated from School of Visual Arts. I use many mediums, but mainly work with oil with modern subjects. Portrait painting is my strength and I love painting all sorts of lights; warm, cool, colored lights, and sunset. When light hits and glows, the magical moments come. I like to capture the sparking second of people. I love the sunlight shining through hair, the bright highlights on their faces, the color shifts of skin tones, and gentle atmospheres embracing them around. I also enjoy dreamy spaces. My paintings explore spaces that are in between real and surreal. I find its poetry in the ambiguity of the spaces and expressions.
