Newspaper Art by Shin-Young An

New Jersey artist Shin-Young An uses newspapers as the backdrop for her hyper-realistic paintings. Applying oil paints with meticulous care, the artist juxtaposes ordinary routine tasks with exceptional and often disturbing events. She says, "The main theme of my recent work is exploring the unfortunate reality of our present world."
