Artist Spotlight: David Heo

Artist David Heo’s practice spans a variety of different genres, including large-scale paintings, works on paper, mural paintings, and brand collaborations. Though wide-ranging in medium, his works all reflect an idiosyncratic vision of the contemporary world, as well as his personal approach to subject matter, defined by a meticulous yet whimsical layering and color palette. Heo plays with the peripheries between the new and the familiar, illustrating a range of folklore from grand, mythic metanarratives to quiet frames of daily life. His works references symbology classic to historical paintings and illustrations of mythology and folklore—the beasts, the flame, the muse— these reimagined works subsequently call back onto the viewer, kindling flashes of moments and recollections from their own pasts.
