Sunga Park: Life is But A Dream

SungaPark3There is something to be said for the delicate simplicity of well placed line and colour and knowing when to stop. These are the qualities I love about the gorgeous watercolour work of self-taught South-Korean designer and illustrator Sunga Park. Her images seem to bleed into the page, without restraint of finite definition, evoking a dream-like stasis. Image and substrate blend into one and the same, as lines and colours wash across the page in a sheer fragment of reality.

Her architectural studies involve buildings from around the world, in such landmark cities as London, Paris, Istanbul, Busan, Venice, and Oxford. Having a firm grasp of both positive and negative space to create her imagery is essential to the structure of her illustrations, blurring the lines between the two in soft washes of colour and sharp contrast of detailed lines. It forces the viewer to almost envision the rest of the piece in their own interpretation, creating a real synergy between man and piece.

Her metro sketches are also a treat – she captures the emotions of her subjects caught in a moment of banal reflection, in a voyeuristic way that isn’t intrusive. Keeping with the dream-like quality of her architectural works, they profess to have a rich background that only you can imagine, without being blatantly shown.

Check out more of her work on her Behance or flickr pages.

  1. This is so incredibly beautiful…. what a talent that person has in order to create this. True alchemist.

      • Natural talent is what? ๐Ÿ™‚ Is someone forcing their talent?

      • Haha! As opposed to having been formally taught those skills.

      • Hmmmm.. I think both are necessary ๐Ÿ™‚ … I am always pro balance even though extremes can also create interesting outcomes.

      • Absolutely, I agree ๐Ÿ™‚

      • ๐Ÿ™‚ you dont have to haha.. But I am happy when ppl sometimes agree too. Hihiih
