Wood-Wrapped Newspaper Mosaics by Lee Kyu-Hak
Talented Korean artist Kyu-Hak Lee graduated from Chung-Ang University in Seoul, Korea. She is the author of these artworks, which mostly imitate works by outstanding Dutch painter Vincent Van Gogh. The famous paintings, are, in fact, exact copies made by wrapping small wooden wedges with colored newsprint that mimic the brushstrokes of famous artists. However, Lee’s artworks appear to be paintings from afar, but up-close, one can see them as mosaics. These mixed medias on boards include Van Gogh’s chair, The Starry Night, A Chair, and Almond Blossoms.

The most famous paintings by Van Gogh, Gauguin and other painters, artist recreates in the so-called technique of mixed media, which combines mosaic, installation and application form, and requires much more material for creativity than the usual painting, installation, mosaic. So to simulate brush strokes, Kyu-Hak Lee uses thin and long wooden pegs, and to give them color, wraps pegs with colored pages from newspapers and magazines. And then adds the resulting “puzzle”, ensuring maximum accuracy to the original.
