HYPER-SURREALIST SCULPTURES BY SOUTH KOREAN ARTIST CHOI XOO ANG
Choi Xoo Ang is a sculptor who dabbles in both hyper realism and abstract surrealism. The artist is certainly emerging on the mixed media scene, and has exploded out of Seoul, South Korea with a style of work pioneered by artists like Ron Muek, and is now making a name for himself through the many awards he has already won such as the Artists of Tomorrow 2010 and Sungkok Museum Award from his town of Seoul. Ang’s work distorts the concept of the real to an astonishing degree, but only insofar as to keep his viewers trapped inside of his investigations into human rights, sex and gender roles, and the pathological state of society, never pushing you too far over any of these edges.
