The series Love Is takes a look at the simpler joys in a relationship.

What is love? It’s a simple question with innumerable answers that has been asked time and time again throughout the ages, even before Haddaway cemented it into modern pop culture lexicon.

While love means many things to many people, one South Korean artist, Puuung, is defining it in her own way – through an ongoing series of paintings of the everyday happenings of a couple in love. The series Love Is captures the more subtle gestures that define what love is in a relationship, brought to life in beautiful multi-toned splashes of watercolor. The paintings show the little moments in the couple’s life, like one tucking their exhausted partner in to sleep…

…cooking lunch together…

…cuddling together while watching a movie…

…sharing a home-cooked meal…

…taking an impromptu nap together…

…sharing a sweet hug from behind…

…sharing in a hobby…

…and more.

Of her series, Puuung explains, “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 artwork.” She began her series back in 2014, yet still continues to add to the collection today. Her ability to capture the seemingly insignificant moments that make a relationship so special, and portray it with colorful strokes of a brush has garnered her a loyal following. You can check out her full portfolio on Grafolio, and follow her on Facebook to keep up with her ever-growing collection.
