Joongwon Jeong is a South Korean artist who excels in his art. Jeong’s painted portraits could be mistaken for photographs … and that for good reason. His work is part of the hyperrealism movement. The viewer quickly realizes that every detail, every hair has been carefully crafted. The skin texture is represented in an incredibly faithful way by the brushstrokes of the artist. The same goes for the carnation. Due to the quality of his work, Jeong received, in 2011, the first Prize in Painting by the Beaux-Arts. His paintings are exhibited during solo or group exhibitions.
