Week 14 Activity – Artist Interview – Yireh Elaine Kwak

So after conducting my second to last classmate Interview with Aleks Kivuls, I walked around the art gallery to see what other amazing work we get to see for this week. I was surprised for this week because I stumbled across a very familiar face this time. Her name is Yireh Kwak, and I’m sure a lot of us have met her before in a previous exhibit this semester. I remembered I enjoyed her work before and I’m fortunate enough to see more of her incredible work. Yireh Kwak told us how her work in the exhibit are set up. She tells us that each one of her paintings are like her babies, and that they take different times to perfect. Yireh also tells us that she paints every day, and if she is not painting, she is sketching for a new painting. Yireh states that she doesn’t want to sell any of her, but she had thoughts about it in the past. The majority of the exhibition had vibrant colors and beautiful portraits that all of us were able to see. It was a very enjoyable experience.
