Impressive hyper-realistic paintings of gleaming water drops by Kim Tschang-Yeul

A selection of hyper-realistic paintings of gleaming water drops by Kim Tschang-Yeul (24 December 1929 – 5 January 2021), a South Korean artist, known for his abstract paintings of water droplets, that lived most of his life in France.

The Korean artist, who died earlier this year, was faithful to the seemingly mundane subject matter, choosing to depict the dewy orbs repeatedly after an initial painting in 1972 following his relocation to France. Inspired originally by a water-soaked canvas in his studio, Kim nurtured the viscous element in his hyperrealistic paintings created across nearly five decades.
