Born in 1969 in Seoul, Hong Sungchul completed an M.F.A and B.F.A in sculpture at Hongik University in Seoul before finishing another M.F.A in Integrated Media at California Institute of the Arts.
Hong Sungchul is an artist who embraces modern technologies and various media within his work. The concept of the current body of work has evolved from an earlier stage of his career. His use of numerous staggered elastic strings upon which the imagery is printed, communicates his unique concept of visual consciousness. The broken images interlace and transform to reveal a final image, incomplete until the dynamic interaction of the viewer. Through these engaging three-dimensional works Hong Sungchul attempts to unveil the virtual object through his use of distorted and fragmented imagery resulting in stunning visual effects.
