Colors—bright, loud, popping ones—structure Taejin Seong’s carved and painted wooden panel compositions. Often featuring crowded urban landscape and interior scenes, his works feature a comic book aesthetic merged with traditional woodblock printmaking techniques. Among the figures populating his busy scenes is Robot Taekwon V, an android from popular 1970s cartoons. He enhances his already textured works by carving patterns of text into their surfaces. The side of a house, for example, may be composed entirely of repeating letters. These, in turn, may be interrupted by yet more letters, this time in the form of the ubiquitous banners and signs that compose part of the urban fabric of all cities.
