Unfolding Life Through Art, Travel and Faith
Sophia is an abstract artist based in the US. As a Korean American raised in South America, her art has been influenced by the many cultures she has explored. Hyun's artistic technique involves a harmonious blending of forms and the integration of various materials to express the beauty of movement that lend themselves to the creation of an atmosphere of peace and joy. In her former career as a designer, she developed an affinity for color, texture, and composition. She loves to travel the world and be exposed to new places in order to open her mind to a deeper understanding of humanity and nature. Sophia's intense fascination with all facets of the human experience often finds expression in her art.
Hyun's artwork is inspired by music, nature, travel and meditation. An abstract positive emotion is created through the use of simple lines, geometric shapes, texture, mixed media, composition, dimension, and colors. Her intention is to create a beautiful experience and conversation for the viewers and each painting represents an exploration of her heart and soul.
Hyun also has a background in Fashion Business, Fashion Design, Interior Design and holds a B.A. from UCLA.
