Los-Angeles-based, South-Korea-born artist depicts individuals who instinctively interest him and trigger the wish to translate the experience into a painting. Spontaneous and bursting with honesty, Sung Jik's paintings are a testament of his talent as much his connection with his subjects. While some of his subjects are people whom the artist simply met on the street, others, like the protagonist in this painting, are people whom the artist knows personally. In 'Young Man in Striped Shirt', the hints of lime green belying the subject's skin infuse a zesty and expressive energy to the final portrait.
