Featuring industrial materials such as aluminum frames, tempered glass and polyester films in his paintings, Seung Taik Jang has been continuously exploring different materials. His art is called 'transpainting' as it is 'transparent' in the sense that glass is featured in his works and is methodologically 'translating' the form of painting with a combination of art pieces. In a broader sense, the term also highlights the fact that his art is a new version of painting that goes beyond traditional painting mainly involving brushes and canvases.
He graduated from Hongik University with a degree in Painting and also studied Painting at L'École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratif. He resides in both Pocheon and Berlin. Since his first solo exhibition held at Albert Chanot Art center in Clamart of France in 1989, he has showcased his artworks in a number of solo and group exhibitions. His works are owned in the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, Seoul Museum of Art, Seoul National University and Myongji University.
