SO KIM /
So Kim (b. 1995) is South Korean born multi-disciplinary artist. She received a BFA in Fine Arts from the Parsons School of Design. Kim’s works are presented with explosive, vibrant colors —seemingly playful and uplifting, but simultaneously reflects the solitude of self.
Kim portrays her inner-self in different forms of animals and creatures, along with her ‘best friend’, Uma.
Kims' works focus on the inability of communication, ordinarily emotionally charged and internally driven. Used to visualize reality— the attempt of dialogue, the discordant relation between subject and content and the dysfunctions of language. In short, the lack of clear references are key elements in the work. Again and again, the artist leaves us orphaned with a mix of conflicting feelings and thoughts.
So Kim currently lives and works in New York.
