Kim Ji Young is a Korean artist. The main subject matter of her art is celebrities of all times in literature, films, music and all other artistic genres. Her main questions is whether they are real artists or mere celebrities. The public ceaselessly idolize these figures by uncritically accepting their staged images. Through her work, she tried to express the difference between their signature images and their real-selves. The vibrant color scheme in her paintings demonstrates their will for passionate and devotional commitment to art. It presents their realization of such emotions as delightfulness and happiness yet ironically reveals the opposite such as sorrow and sadness acquired through the attitude of self-sacrifice hidden at the same time. At last, her works brings a rhythmical sense by using a residual image effect expressing the powerful energy and such a feeling forces viewers to fully understand how great and powerful these artists are at a single glance.
