About Artist

In the paintings of Kim, the boundaries between drawing, graffiti, and illustration are dismantled. They are just full of the traces of ‘the drawing’. His drawings are very unique. They are fantastic, bizarre, and provocative. And yet, they fill the screen with unusual energy and excitement, and they boldly show the cheerful spirit of the raw image itself. They seem to be created by intuition.
It is also a process to build a kingdom of his own symbols by symbolizing his inner thoughts and by combining and arranging all the logos and symbols of the world with graffiti or drawing that are naturally exuded from his body and soul. They are visional language and voice different from the characters or languages currently being in use.
