Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Song Hyun-Sook (born 1952)

The South Korean artist Song Hyun-Sook is known for her minimalist paintings which are usually executed with only a few brushstrokes.  At the age of 20, Song Hyun-Sook moved to Germany, where she discovered her passion for painting almost accidentally.  From 1976 to 1981 she studied at the Academy of Arts in Hamburg, followed by her studies of Korean art history at the Chonnam National University in Gwangju, Korea.  She then returned to Hamburg and has since worked as an artist, illustrator and documentary filmmaker. 

In her paintings, the artist intends to combine Western and Eastern elements of art. For this purpose, she applies materials and techniques of both cultures, rendering their symbolic value to her works.  Examples of her paintings are located at the Kunstmuseum in Bern, at the Hamburger Kunsthalle, at the Leeum-Samsung Museum of Modern Art in Korea and the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum in Japan.
