Stella Im Hultberg is a painter currently living and working in Brooklyn, NYC.
Born in South Korea, raised in Seoul, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and later in California, she studied Industrial Design and worked as a product designer before so fortunately returning to art (and coming back to life).
Stella Im Hultberg is raw femininity, sexuality, vulnerability, and reality. Nothing is masked in the faces of her girls; all misery, all troubles are fully evinced. Hultberg’s paintings and drawings cause the viewer to feel for her girls. They are the type of girls that everyone subconsciously desires [male and female alike]. They’ve faces like sombre supermodels but the way their sleepy eyes stare, the way their hands grasp for more, the way their hair falls and rises so freely are what make them so innocently seductive. The girls of Stella Im Hultberg may look as though they are trying to hide away, but they’re not at all. They show you everything everyone should know and appreciate about a woman.
