Introduction

Chae Sung-Pil is a South Korean artist currently residing in Paris, France. Combining his paintings with the philosophy and techniques of traditional Oriental traditions together with the ?quest for new ideas? expressed in Western art, Chae Sung-Pil is quickly becoming one of Korea?s most established and well-known artists. Chae Sung-Pil?s soil palette, collected from various trips around the world and then filtered, diluted with water and mixed with glue, creates an abstract texture on canvas reminiscent of texture of the earth itself. The soil is specially prepared on mulberry paper and often mixed with Chinese ink and powdered silver and gold dust. The organic mixture is then applied onto the canvas with a large brush or brooklets of water, which interact with the soil through slight tilts in the canvas.

Chae Sung-Pil is a doctoral candidate for Plastic Arts in the University of Paris. He holds an MA and BA from Seoul National University and a second Masters from Université Rennes ?. He has had solo exhibitions throughout France, South Korea and China and took part in the 2014 London Art Fair, 2012 Art Basel and 2011 London Art Fair as of late.
