#Art of Fantasy 59: Yongsub Noh (Yong)

yongsub-noh-yong-30Yongsub Noh (Yong) is a concept artist and illustrator from Seoul, Korea, and his paintings are fantastic. From what I could find about this artist, he’s been painting for over 13 years and his creations range from magical worlds and planets and warriors and trolls and aliens and weird one-eyed giant teddy bears to robots and massive cosmic eggs. *Phew!*

Below is a small collection of the artist’s work. Each image links back to the gallery of origin. Enjoy!

I really enjoy it when an artist moves beyond the norm, moves beyond the traditional tropes of fantasy and science fiction. Yong’s art is highly conceptual and imaginative. He creates worlds that are unfamiliar and surreal and fantastic, and he uses a classical approach to his paintings, which, I think, adds a mythical element to them.

Please let me know in the comments what you thought of today’s artist. Also, remember to check out this week’s Art of Science Fiction over at Kōsa Press.

Have an awesome week!

  1. Oh WOW!!!
    I really like this artist. And you know, I normally like characthers the most, but this artist has such a vivid vision, such unique way to portray words, that really thoughes me.
    My favourite is the picture with the whale flying in the sky 🙂
