BIOGRAPHIE

KUN is a painter from Israël, born in 1974. Now, he currently lives and works in New York. He graduated from the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Fine Arts in Jerusalem in 1998. He also obtained a diploma from the Goldsmith College in London in 2000. His paintings are known for their surprisingly realistic aspect. Strongly inspired by photo shots, the artist does oil painting, which belongs to the hyper-realism current. This is why he gives a lot of importance to detail and the end result is just impressive.
As an artist who is firmly averse to painting from the real-world, Shay’s central focus is to contrast the decay of the artificial with that of the natural to create an organic digital removal from the original image. The images that attract and inspire the artist have been deconstructed and reproduced thoroughly. When struck by an image that overwhelms Shay, it prompts him to explore and dissect it, with his interest in the mechanism of perception as opposed to the actual subject.
Landscape, with a close up on a branch, windows covered with raindrops, Kun’s paintings play with our eyes. The artist encourages the spectator to question his relationship with images and reality. Kun portrays mankind as intruders in his painting, as they damage nature.
For  Shay  Kun  a  series  is  never  complete. He revisits each subject as his interpretation of reality  and  our  ability  to  comprehend  the  representational evolves
His latest series is part of Galerie Mickaël Marciano‘s selection.
