Why does she paint on newspaper? According to the artist: "While reading about and listening to these issues in the news, the articles and stories began affecting me in such a way that I wanted this to be reflected in my art. I depict my reactions to these events through the visual interaction of hands, feet and portraits painted against a backdrop of current news articles that have touched me. I try to collect headlines and photos with the least biased contents from around world. Not only do I use current news articles that have had an impact on me, but I also use original newspapers describing historic events in order to preserve those stories on paper for the future. I am concerned that printed media may cease to be as prevalent in the future due to the rapidly developing technology.

"I use gesso, acrylic and oil on a background made up of a collage of original newspapers that are glued on canvas or on top of my previous artwork." You can learn more about the artist by going to: https://www.an-shinyoung.com/
