Kim Woo-Young was born in Busan, South Korea, and received his B.A and M.F.A in Urban Design and Industrial Design from Hongik University. Continuing his studies he soon enrolled at the School of Visual Arts in New York City and received his B.F.A(1992) and M.F.A (1994) in photography. Not only is he a mature photographer, but also a trained architect, city planner, and pioneer in revolutionising the style of photography in Korea. His years in New York gave him the opportunity to experiment with different techniques and mediums in photography. His images of nature taken in the rain resulting in an illusion of deeper dimension, using other methods such as formation in collage or painting with the composition of charcoal and lacquer on photographic paper and one major modification was presenting images of nature in an abstract form onto an acrylic panel through silk screen printing.
