About Rok Yu
Rok is a Korean-Canadian artist based in Vancouver, BC.
He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Emily Carr University in 2008.
He works primarily in oil and acrylic. His interests lie in exploring the symbolic meaning of “style” in the construction of identity. The body of work he has been developing deals with exploration into both contemporary portraiture and old masters. Rok's latest series of quick oil sketches from his sketchbook are inspired by his personal revelations and narratives in which he explores the essence of people and his childhood memories.
