In an age when love has been reduced to Valentine’s Day cards, expensive gifts and diamonds, one tends to forget that there are as many ways to love, as there are people. Korean artist Puuung chooses to show that love isn’t always about grand gestures, and that the small things too matter. Whether it’s dancing, reading, cooking and even comforting each other during stressful times, Puuung illustrates these ordinary actions and makes one re-think the whole notion of love. With the use of simple colours and relatable themes in a series of images titled “Love Is”, Puuung’s shows a couple doing little things for each other, effortlessly capturing the heart of the viewer. On her pages on Grafolio, the artists and Facebook, she says: “‘Love’ is something that everybody can relate to. And ‘Love’ comes in ways that we can easily overlook in our daily lives. So, I try to find the meaning of love in our daily lives and make it into artworks.” All of her illustrations on this series can be viewed on her Grafolio and Facebook pages.
