Born in 1972, Suyoung Her studied traditional ink paintings at Seoul National University, and he received his M. A. in paintings at the Tianjin College of Fine arts, China. He was on the faculty of Jeonju University and lecturer at Won-kwang University in South Korea. Mr. Her currently lives and works in Korea.
One detects in Her's work the influences of his inspiration Wang Meng (c. 1308-1385), as well as elements of Northern Song style; however, Her infuses the grandeur and drama of monumental landscape with a supple expressivity that is distinctly modern.
