Korean artist Rimi Yang 

The four paintings below are by Korean born artist Rimi Yang. Yang studied in both the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative and The Otis College of Art and Design. Later she also studied in Italy in the Florence Academy of Art.

Yang’s work is celebrated for its vibrant use of colour, and her paintings are said to be intuitive, instinctive balancing acts of contrasts. Yang is not afraid to borrow images from both Eastern and Western artistic masters. The influence of Japanese artist Eizan and the classical Ingres are paramount.

While drawing inspiration from the past Yang also looks to create her own individual voice by mixing various techniques from different styles. Her work is said to "Celebrate the creative duality that exists in life....she revels in the confusion mankind creates in its attempt to order the un-orderable and to explain the unexplainable".

The work of Rimi Yang exhibited last year in the Sol Art Gallery Dublin.
