Artist Nara Shin from South Korea describes painting as a medium that allows her to understand things other than herself. As a child, she was into drawing and taught herself, but later she entered the Seoul Institute of the Arts and majored in digital art.
While growing up she used to live in the countryside surrounded by mountains and fields which seemed friendly in the daytime, but strange and scary at night.
“The mountain is a wonderful view, but it has a quiet and scary look somewhere. I don’t want to miss that feeling. I want to paint something that is friendly but weird and lovely but strange,” the artist said in an interview for Ballpit. “I embody the picture with the atmosphere that I feel in color. I can’t imagine what it’s like without color.”
