About the artwork
Lee Jung Woong displays his artistic mastery with this hyperrealist painting, which brings a sense of exciting dynamism to the dining area of this home. The artist depicts a brush with incredible detail, using his skillful technique to illustrate the the nuances of the brush hairs gleaming wood of its handle. The paint splatter, extending in different directions across the canvas, generates a sense of movement and dynamism. Lee’s perfectly rendered brush and splatter, reproduced at a larger-than-life scale on a massive canvas, imbues his work with a humorous, Pop Art inspired quality that connects ancient techniques with contemporary perspectives.
