The work of Kyung Hwan Kwon, an artist hailing from South Korea, is dramatically dark. This is due in large part, if not wholly, to the fact that he uses black paper to create a majority of them. Although it would seem almost impossible to create such evocative scenes using such material, armed with acrylic and color pencils, Kyung Hwan Kwon has made the impossible possible.

From bright explosions to threatening figures in the night, Kyung Hwan Kwon tailors his subject matter to his medium of choice. His imaginings are well-suited to the black paper he uses. In fact, the black paper most likely inspires his creations. My Modern Met notes, "This style of drawing requires an excellent sense of light or, in this case, the absence of it."
