The Painterly Illustrations Of Hoook

Hoook is a painterly South Korean hobbyist turned illustrator who captured our attention with his surreal, painterly art style. Hoook's illustrations over the last year or two have been unified by an ongoing aquatic theme as represented by his subject matter and soft, aquatic color schemes.

What makes his work most interesting though is his compositional choices, adding a rather unsettling tone to the body of his work. From distant, lost looking mermaids to shadowy figures cropped out of frames, Hoook's beautiful paintings leave a lot to the viewers imaginations.
