Lim Cheol Hee

South Korean artist Lim Cheol Hee‘s paintings have caught the attention of many art-lovers around the world – including the king of art, Saatchi.

Lim Cheol HeeIt’s no wonder why when you see his paintings. With the paint applied to canvas using a brush and knife, Saatchi’s site says ‘His art style reflects people’s inner consciousness, using repeated strokes’.

Personally I love the aggression and erratic style that contrasts with the stillness of certain facial features. A contrast that is also present in his tools, a soft canvas-caressing brush and a deadly knife.
