Seoul, South Korea
Seo Young Deok is a South Korean sculptor best known for his powerful metal sculptures of the human form. The artist deftly explores figuration and romances the beautiful contortions of the body. He has a unique ability to strike a balance between the weight and power of his materiality and the delicate, fragile nature of his compositions. His hyper-realistic creations allude to the relationship between the individual and their environment and closes the chasm between human and machine. The artist has exhibited extensively internationally and continues to practice out of his studio in South Korea.
