Hong Sungchul was born in Korea and earned a B.F.A. in Sculpture from Hong-ik University in Seoul as well as an M.F.A. in Integrated Media from the California Institute of the Arts.
As an artist he embraces modern technologies and various media within his work. The concept of the current body of work has evolved from an earlier stage of his career. His use of numerous staggered elastic strings upon which the imagery is printed, communicates his unique concept of visual consciousness. The broken images interlace and transform to reveal a final image, incomplete until the dynamic interaction of the viewer. Through these engaging three-dimensional works Hong Sungchul attempts to unveil the virtual object through his use of distorted and fragmented imagery resulting in stunning visual effects.
His work can be founf in the collections of the Seoul Museum of Art, National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Korea), Pfizer Korea and SK Telecom.
