Jang’s work evolved from figurative art into her signature art style. Blending cartoon-like forms with Eastern painting techniques, Jang Koal produces enticing narratives populated by a host of daring female characters.
Although she has a background in illustration work, Koal started out in painting and emloys age-old techniques, using multiple layers of paint on traditional Korean paper, hanji.
Cat-like eyes, strong lashes, bright red lips and pale white skin are trademark features of Koal’s powerful figures, the protagonists in a world where exploration and discovery are key.
As the artist herself explains,
“losing one’s sense of curiosity and the will to discover something new is even scarier than the unknown. “
