PERSONAL HISTORY
Hwang was born in 1956 in South Korea, and it was evident at an early age that he had a true passion for art. In middle school, his second-grade art teacher once took him aside after watching him paint and told him, “You will be a famous artist one day.”

He continued to study art during his schooling and later enrolled in South Korean University. It was here that Hwang began working with oil painting, laying the foundation for the singular style that would define his artistic talent for decades to come. Hwang eventually left the university to pursue his own studies, feeling that he could learn to perfect his technique on his own.



His oil paintings often bring to life expansive city scenes, captured in black, white, and gray, in a refined style that incorporates elements of pointillism. These muted environments are then enlivened by bold color accents—streetlamps, flowers, signs, or, most commonly, brightly-hued individuals going about their daily routines. Hwang is also known for his stirring abstract canvases as well.
