Kim Young-Hun

Kim Young-Hun (b. 1964 in Nonsan, Korea) is currently based between New York City and Seoul. He obtained B.F.A. in painting from Hongik University and holds two M.F.A. from Chelsea College of Art and Design and Goldsmiths College in London. Living through the transition between the analog and digital generations, Kim is passionate about observing and deciphering the unknown between the 1 and 0 binary codes. His works demonstrate a traditional Korean painting technique called Hyuk-pil (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 15 solo and 70 group exhibitions. His paintings are in several prestigious public and corporate collections, including Bank of America, The Arts Club, and numerous museums.
