Hyeyoung Hwang (South Korea)

Hyeyoung Hwang(b. 1977) works with the theme of adolescent girls. The girl represents all modern individuals, regardless of gender or age, as according to the artist, adolescence never truly stops in one's life, differing only in degree and timing. Viewers empathize with the girl's growth and journey as they appreciate the artworks.

Artist's Note
Cloud Girl

The reason I decided to draw a young girl as the main character was that I could project myself into the girl's fragility, immaturity, and honesty. The story drawn over a long period of time naturally created a moment of growth for both the girl and myself. The variety of emotions expressed through the growing pains of puberty in the forest, the courage to face small and big insecurities, and the adventurous spirit to explore new challenges made me grow.

I hope that her whole journey of overcoming the puberty can be a comfort to everyone.
