Jiyeon Kim, a Korean painter, took to Tinder to capture portraits of strangers in an abstract fashion.

As people tend to use pictures that they feel are able to convey something positive about themselves on the dating app, it functioned as the perfect place to retrieve portraits that would speak to their internal motivations. For the most part, Jiyeon Kim's portraits seem to reveal subjects that are bored or unsatisfied with their current states, which is perhaps why they're seeking out affection through the ultra-convenient dating app.

A selection of the portraits show men peacocking in a sense as well, with parts of their bodies left exposed to make their intentions on the app more clear, as well as their self-perception.
