I just saw your post and think you might like to see this. It is the answers to your questions about the artist, paintings and much more. I would like you to watch the videos based on the order I am sending them, you would see it makes a lot of sense.
Hwa Bi Jung is the name of the Korean artist and this is her website where you can see the full videos (I still included the links of the full videos of her visits to Hell and Heaven) because I noticed what you saw was a chip of the iceberg.
Paintings of visit to hell
Paintings of visit to Heaven
I believe the reality of hell is shown to us so that we can work harder to get into heaven, thats my personal opinion :). You would notice in the artists visit to Heaven, Jesus showed her a pink house which He said belongs to a woman who did a lot of good (We believe He was talking about the Blessed Virgin Mary Herslf even though He didn’t mention names:). Who else can compete with the Blessed Mother regarding how much She loves Jesus?
For us Catholics, any catholic who gets to visit heaven will likely see the Blessed Virgin and some of the Saints but a non-catholic will have limited details based on the level of their understanding. Hwa Bi Jung mentioned she saw very many people jumping into hell, she even held on tightly to Jesus because she was terrified as seen in the paintings.
That reminded me of a teenage catholic visionary from Nigeria, Christiana Agbo’s vision of Our Lady taking her to visit hell. She talked about the same thing of very many people jumping into hell and scared of hell also, she held on tightly to Our Lady. This visionary lives in Benue State of Nigeria and the events took place in early 1990s to 1996.
You will love this comparison by a little girl’s (she is now grown up and her name is Akiane) vision of Jesus with the Holy Shroud of Turin. She painted the picture of Jesus based on how he appeared to her, she also painted some scenes about Heaven too (last link). Her parents were formerly atheists (her dad was a catholic turned atheist), now they are christians because of Akiane’s visions. The Holy Shroud of Turin has to do with us catholics. Non-catholics are being shown confirmations of what we catholics already knew and believed. Its good to remain a catholic for life and be grateful too because God gave us a rare privilege.
