An Open Heart

beauty of madness

We dream of hope, we dream of change, of fire, of love, of death, and then it happens, the dream becomes real. And the answer to the quest, this need to solve life’s mysteries finally shows itself, like the glowing light of the new dawn. So much struggle, for meaning, for purpose, but in the end we find it only in each other. Our shared experiences of the fantastic, and the mundane. The simple, human need to find the kindred, to connect, and to know in our hearts that we are not alone.

#Art of Fantasy 59: Yongsub Noh (Yong)

Wow, this artist

Woelf Dietrich

yongsub-noh-yong-30Yongsub Noh (Yong) is a concept artist and illustrator from Seoul, Korea, and his paintings are fantastic. From what I could find about this artist, he’s been painting for over 13 years and his creations range from magical worlds and planets and warriors and trolls and aliens and weird one-eyed giant teddy bears to robots and massive cosmic eggs. *Phew!*

Below is a small collection of the artist’s work. Each image links back to the gallery of origin. Enjoy!

I really enjoy it when an artist moves beyond the norm, moves beyond the traditional tropes of fantasy and science fiction. Yong’s art is highly conceptual and imaginative. He creates worlds that are unfamiliar and surreal and fantastic, and he uses a classical approach to his paintings, which, I think, adds a mythical element to them.

Please let me know in the comments what you thought of today’s artist. Also, remember…
