L Redman

 The artist known as Redman is reaching the prime of his career, evidenced both by the masterful balance of color, life and light, and by his recent receipt of the 1999 Grand Prize at the Schekch National Art Exhibition in his home nation of Korea. Born in Suncheon City, Korea on September 16, 1957, the artist graduated from Maisan High School before challenging the Rococo complexities of the eighteenth-century French masters. His bright skies and dexterity of brushwork echo the mastery of Fragonard, and his delicate ferns and flowers contrast beautifully with his trademark grapes and other robust, vivid fruits.
