Park Hyung Jin

I'm getting a bit fed up with this term "photorealism" to describe a painting that is high quality, detailed, traditional art with no fuzz or slapdash brushwork. This beautiful portrait of J. H. Wee (2013) is by South Korean artist Park Hyung Jin. Its one unusual feature is that it stands 7 feet high. That is one BIG portrait! The girl is one of Park Hyung Jin's art students. They are queuing up to be painted. His work is being shown at the Bernarducci Meisel Gallery in New York. It's his second solo show there and must be well worth a visit if you're in the Big Apple (CLICK).
