ABOUT ME
WHAT I'VE DONE

WHAT I DO

Sean Yang was born and raised in South Korea, and now lives in Los Angeles, CA.  He received his MFA in Sculpture at California State University Fullerton, where he has taught since 2016. 

He lives in Los Angeles, CA.

The contents of my work have been transformed due to the change of  my geographical setting from Korea to America. Thus the change of my work was inevitable. I react to world events, reality and an imaginative subconscious as well.

Subject matters encompass universal issues such as food industry, human nature, social control, public ethics,  environment, and also self-awareness and self-image.

 

PORTFOLIO

As an artist, my passion is visual arts. I am  interested in depicting three dimensional forms whether it's manmade or from nature. Giving  forms to ideas is my job. I go in and out of the boundaries between two dimensional images and three-dimensional forms . 

I make use of mixed media and also use discarded found objects and cast  objects as symbolic  elements. It's very important to me to contribute to the outer world  as a self-centered artist.

My goal is to give viewers an awareness of reality by presenting an imaginative subconscious. The ongoing approach to my art is to get viewers to think, agree or disagree and become intrigued.

Lost Self
Lost Self

Lost Self happens to many immigrants when they adapt to the current social climate and culture. As an immigrant, deconstructing outdated values and beliefs that I grew up with was necessary because it doesn't fit into the current mold that I live in. Deconstruction and reconstruction of outdated values and beliefs were evident while adapting to the new socio-cultural climate.
