Shin-Young paints amazing portraits in newspapers, it seems that they are fading away, that time is making them disappear. The effect is subtle but strong, and definitely very original. She creates portraits juxtaposing ordinary, routine tasks against a backdrop of current news articles featuring a variety of social, political and environmental issues and events. Shin-Young began studying art in South Korea, obtaining a B.F.A. from Hyosung Women’s University in Daegu. She has additionally studied at the Art Students League of NY, U.S.A and “Cercle Artistic de Sant Lluc” in Barcelona, Spain after she received her M.F.A in painting from The Graduate School of Figurative Art of the New York Academy of Art by 2001.
