A beautiful new time-lapse video celebrates the beauty of life as Korean artist and illustrator Seok Jeong Hyeon transforms a baby to an old woman in minutes.
“Seok, who is better known as Stonehouse, has meticulously rendered each of life’s stages in layers, so that a baby swiftly transforms into a growing girl who, in her turn becomes a young lady before the inevitable happens and an aging woman emerges from the skilful brush of the artist,” the London Daily Mail reports.
“The four-minute video captures the poignancy of aging wonderfully as the artist affects minute changes which thoroughly alter the painting, although the features of the ‘subject’ remain the same throughout,” it says.
Step-by-step details in short, swift strokes are added to the painting, which becomes more and more lifelike as it ‘ages’. The face becomes longer, losing its baby fat chubbiness and hair goes through various color and length changes.
Mr Seok manipulates his digital brush skilfully, adding minute changes upon each layer and building a picture of a woman who has left her youth behind and is going towards old age.
As the painting becomes ‘older’, the subject too takes on mature gaze.
