The art of Young Wook Song

This past weekend I got to see a show of works by my colleague Young Wook Song at The Satellite Space in San Antonio. Young is an artist from Korea and is also a graduate student at UTSA. The show that he put together is his graduate thesis show which all grad students are required to have in order to receive their M.F.A degree. Young's work has a lot to deal with his childhood in Korea and he has explored this concept through drawings, paintings, sculptures and instillations. His show "Reminiscing" consisted of large charcoal drawings, paper sculptures and instillations. Young has always been one of my favorite artists from UTSA because of his hard work, dedication, and explorations through different mediums. His work looked amazing and I am sure that he will do well in his future endeavors.
