Kim Young-Hun

Kim Young-Hun (b. 1964) was born in Nonsan, Korea. He is currently based in New York City and Seoul. Kim received his B.F.A. in painting from Hongik University. Continuing his studies, he soon enrolled at Chelsea College of Art and Design, and Goldsmiths College in London, and holds two M.F.A.s. Living through the transition between the analog generation and digital generation, Kim Young-Hun is passionate in observing and deciphering the unknown between the 1 and 0 of binary codes. Kim’s works demonstrate a traditional Korean painting technique called Hyukpil (革筆畫), in which the painter mixes various colors and paints with rapid strokes using a leather brush. The multi-colored stripes that seem to flow like ink are made by one continuous brush stroke across the canvas, with the oil colors melting together and permeating into the canvas. Kim has exhibited extensively internationally with over 10 solo and 60 group exhibitions. His paintings are in several prestigious public and corporate collections, including Bank of America, and The Arts Club, and in numerous museums.
