Unfolding Life Through Art, Travel and Faith

 Sophia Hyun is an international abstract artist based in the US.  Her gestural and color-field styles have been influenced by the many cultures she has explored.  Artist Sophia 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.  She has a deep fascination with the multifaceted nature of the human spiritual experience and this expression transfer to her art.
As an artist, she developed an affinity for color, texture, and composition.  Sophia's artistic technique involves a harmonious blending of forms, layers and the integration of a variety of materials paired with the beauty of movement that lend themselves to the creation of an atmosphere of joy.  
Sophia's artwork is inspired by colors, nature, meditation, music, architecture, and travel.   As part of her evolution as an artist, she is also inspired by observing and learning about daily events that create emotional narratives for her paintings.  Sophia believes that colors are powerful medium that bridges the different energies and emotions that affect human's mood rhythmically and she utilizes this effect to create positive abstract emotions in her artworks.  Through her work, she aims to express a beautiful, contemplative and evocative experience of emotion.
Sophia holds a B.A. from UCLA and also has a background in Fashion Industry, and Interior Design.
