Kwangyup CHEON

Kwangyup Cheon was born in 1958 in Hwasung, South-Korea. He studied at the Kyunghee University in Seoul and at the Pratt Institute in New York.

Kwangyup Cheon is best known for his oil abstract monochrome paintings on canvas composed by a repetition of even-sized dots or delicate shapes made with computer generated stencils. From certain angles the imperceptibly protruding or inverted dots appear as an illusion and challenge the viewer’s perceptions.
