Kim Sun Hyuk is an artist in South Korea. He got a master’s degree in sculpture from University of Seoul in 2011.
His childhood dream was to be a good artist. “I make a constant effort to achieve my dream in the present. I want to say through my artwork what human being is in the natural world. Everyday, anywhere I realize that we are so little exist compare to the works of God. So I seek the smallest artist under the sky.”
The artist created a series entitled Drawn By Life, that depicts Hyuk’s interpretation of the human root system. Are plant roots sculptures made of stainless steel which have the appearance of blood vessels forming images of human body parts. Sculpted from metal, each piece has an incredible structural layout and elegantly depicts the figure we are intended to see.
All the forms are also hollowed out, looking as if the roots that were encasing the image has been removed. Notice the emotion these pieces carry given some of their limited use of lines.
