"This is one of two pieces of mine that was on exhibit for the Scope New York art fair 2014, at the C.A.V.E Gallery
. The thought of people sharing similar feelings or a moment in time through music helped fuel the creation of this piece.
The original was painted with oils on a 30 x 30 Inch canvas and took over a week to finish after the image had been fully matured in my mind. My paintings are inspired by people, my surroundings, memories from my past and things of that nature. They give birth to images in my head that develop into the pictures that I paint." - Young Chun
Born a minister's son in 1977 in Seoul Korea, Young Chun remembers as a child, living in a small attachment to a hillside church for a brief time. The weekdays spent running around with imaginary friends in the dim empty chapel has fueled his imagination, contributing to his artistic growth. The "chapel" has become a permanent fixture in his creative mind - where he constructs, develops, and stores works in progress, before they ever meet a sketchpad.
In 2000, Young received his B.F.A, from the Art Center College of Design, in Pasadena California. After several years of painting without clear direction, he stumbled into the opposite end of the spectrum - into the healthcare field - to search for "substance" and "something deeper in life". The years spent working in hospitals in the LA area, faced with life and death situations; has expanded his outlook in life, adding to his artistic vision.
In February of 2011, Young quit his career as a respiratory therapist, to pursue a life as a full time artist. He currently lives and works in Orange County, California.
