From Andrew Michael Ford Gallery:
“Artist Fawn Fruits (aka Daniel Hyun Lim) has a new name, a new attitude and a body of exciting new artwork! Available for the first time are many of the original pencil & charcoal drawings for some of Fawn Fruits most popular digitally colored prints. These original drawings prove the amazing ability of Fawn Fruits and make us all jealous of someone who is this good on and OFF the computer. Fawn Fruits is leading a new group of young artists who have grown up around both traditional and new media tools, making them that much more adaptable and resourceful when making their artwork.
With Fawn Fruits, there is an important idea or purpose behind everything being made. We will let Fawn Fruits explain it to you:
“My artwork is greatly (if not mostly) influenced by media. I grew up watching a LOT of television.
Therefore, my work revolves around pop culture, fun, and excitement. However, when people see my work,
they do not see “bubble gum hyper Japanese visuals”. Although my work is filled with these sorts of images,
I have never been able to let go of my darker, more depressed nature. It may be because of losing my mother to
deep depression, or even suffering a mere simple crushed heart. Whatever lured me to my “dark side”, there has
always been a taste of that side of me within my work.
Everyone has different ways of coping with tragedy. I’ve learned to cope through drawingâ€”my form of self expression.
My color palette has changed from dark, muted tones to those of pastel hues. My medium has also changed from heavy
acrylics to lighter colors and styles.
Working with children has also played an integral part in my life as an
artist. I’ve learned not to take life so seriously and just have fun making my images, now. Like a preschooler wouldn’t
question his/her ability to draw the human figure, I’ve learned to just let go and draw for fun!
When people look at my work, I would like them to see……hope. We all go through struggles in life, some bigger
than others. We are all bombarded with images of despair and destruction. Me? I just want to draw something that
will bring smiles, peace, and healing to my audience.”
