Kyoung Tack Hong

This week we are featuring Kyoung Tack Hong, who is a Korean contemporary painter. We first encountered his work at Art Basel Hong Kong 2013. Hong is known for his photorealistic depictions of colored pencils and other office-themed settings, along with some pop culture references.

Hong Kyoung-Tack, well-known locally as a popular collector’s favorite from a then-record 2007 sale of HK$6.48 million, sold an artwork for HK$6.63 at the Christie’s event for contemporary Asian art. The work, “Pencil 1” (Lot 47), sold above its original appraisal value, making it the most expensive Korean artwork to be sold at the international auctioneer. – Ines Min
