BO SONG (송보경) | Korea
My name is Bo Song (송보경 Song, Bo Kyung) I was born in 1968 Seoul, Korea. I currently living and working in Unjung-dong, Korea. I had the pleasure living in several countries namely New Zealand and United States. I graduated from Oakland University of Studio Art in Michigan, USA in 2016 and I studied Dankook Graduate Art School in Korea in 2017. My Journey as an painter began in the summer of 2012 at a humble age of 44. What was a simple delight in a hobby let to discovery recognition by professors as a second major. Taking the paint blush in my hand, this epiphany drove me to immerse myself into the artistic world.
When I begin oil painting, the canvas became “meditation.” for healing my mind. I layer colors and shaped in a spontaneous process based on intuition rather than planned sketches or drawings. I enjoy experimenting colors with “colors” and “shapes.” I painting using bright, rich pools of unmodulated colors in various subject matters. Indeed, my imagined scenes and painterly brushwork indicate my ability to make paintings without inhibition. Since 2017 as a Buddhist, notions of karma and zen are present and clearly visible in my paintings. I also frequently draw upon the concept of the ancient mandala, a circular symbol in Buddhism and representative of the cosmos. I often incorporate circles and spheres into my works, signifying the connected nature of past and present.
