South Korean artist Hyeyeol is fascinated by symmetry. Many of her compositions feature sides that are mirror images of its counterpart, similar to a Rorschach test. Unlike the popular ink blots used in psychology, however, Hyeyeol’s works are meticulously defined pieces that depict psychedelic scenes with a Renaissance approach to drawing anatomy. "Idiosyncratic" does not even begin to describe her images.

Hyeyeol, whose real name is Song Hye Yeol, is also notable for her bizarrely creepy concepts. Many of her subjects appear unclothed and are contorted into poses that make yoga positions seem basic. Coupled with the sinister expressions on these people’s faces, Hyeyeol’s renderings can truly induce nightmares in those who are easily frightened.

Lastly, it’s worth mentioning that Hyeyeol is highly adept at using a variety of media, using watercolors and inks in a harmonious and skilled manner.
