Kim Keun-Tai (b. 1953) was born in Seoul, Korea and he graduated from Chung-Ang University in Seoul. Kim had his first solo exhibition in 1988, and he has since had works exhibited both at home and overseas: Germany, Japan, Vietnam, Hong Kong and the US. While he is often associated with the Dansaekhwa (單色畫) movement, through deep philosophical and aesthetic research he has always sought to go beyond the conceptual limits. At a time when his contemporaries were primarily preoccupied with making figuration known as hyper-realism, the young artists’ attempt to reverse the older generation’s abstract art: Kim showed more of an affinity towards Dansaekhwa (單色畫). Kim’s work has been presented in galleries and museums including Korea’s Chosun Ilbo Art Museum, Germany’s Galerie Konrad Munter and Hong Kong’s Whitestone Gallery. His works are collected by Sungkok Art Museum, PyeongChang Organizing Committee for the 2018 Olympic & Paralympic Games and KEB Hana Bank.
