Phil Yoon, a renowned artist and photographer, has always been drawn to the Los Angeles skyline. The angles, shapes, and silhouettes of the city’s architecture closely mirroring his journey of living boldly without compromise.
Featured in the all-electric 2024 Cadillac LYRIQ with refined integration of technology and attention to detail, Phil recounts his journey of pushing the limits of his art. “Always innovating on ways to shatter the status quo and bridge the divide between traditional and digital art worlds,” he says. A similar ethos to the underlying essence of the LYRIQ. As Cadillac’s first electric SUV, LYRIQ is forward-looking, unconstrained by the needs of traditional internal combustion engines. Its bold EV technologies and bravely designed silhouettes that look sporty, yet elegant, push boundaries and raise the standards of luxury – just like Phil.  
While driving through the streets of Los Angeles, Phil reflects on his Asian American experience. “My family consisted of my mother and older brother. After years of hard work, my brother became a surgeon—but it was a sacrifice we all made. I’ll never forget it when he looked at me and said, ‘Now, it’s your turn to chase your passions.’”
Once free to pursue his art, Phil was able to realize his own strengths. “I’ve never been concerned with the expectations of others,” he muses. “Whether it was pursuing the arts or playing baseball — at a time when not very many people looked like me — I realized that being an outsider was actually my superpower.” 
Powered with an *EPA-estimated 314-mile range on Rear Wheel Drive, Phil parks at a public charging station to charge the all-electric LYRIQ with ease while he captures photos of nearby architecture. “The silhouettes and lines stand tall,” he shares, “their presence never succumbing to the colorful chaos of the city.”

With the Advanced 33” diagonal LED display technology, Phil can personalize his driving experience. He adjusts the ambient light spectrum within LYRIQs interior to reflect his soothing mood. “My unique lens and desire to be seen for who I am inspires me to be better than the day before,” he says.  
As we reach dusk, Phil approaches the LYRIQ to head home. “My success is defined by framing my own shots and sitting firmly in the driver’s seat,” he shares, exterior lighting choreography welcomes him, reflective of the natural rhythms of Phil’s soulful flow. “That’s true luxury.”
