Welcome! My name is Seungeun Suh (aka HIBISCUS).

I majored in fine-arts at Keimyung University in South Korea. After graduation, I have been working as an art-school teacher, gallery curator and as a professional painter at the same time. I've had my very own exhibitions three times and participated succesfully in over thirty group exhibitions.

I am always interested in a style of the Oriental art materials mixed with the Western composition. I focus on thick rice-paper, Chinese ink, and oriental watercolors for my paintings. The Eastern rice-paper allows me to create a more deep and rich color combination as opposed to the regular regular watercolor paper.

I love to paint women in lyrical moods, animals and all natural objects.
I spread pigments on the rice-paper carefully and focus on the beauty of space.
The variety of size in pigments spreading and composition of white space makes the audience feel a dreamy and surreal atmosphere.
I've been more than happy to hear from fans in Japan and Korea that my paintings alone help heal their souls and uplifts their spirits.
