Chinwook Kim


Chinwook Kim is a Korean artist whose work is a combination of drawing, painting, sculpture and doodling, producing from the mix some imaginative and lyrical works that grow organically across any surface he chooses to work on. On the one hand it’s graphic and almost illustrational, but there is also something much more complex and ambitious happening in his paintings – as if the process of production were an adventure in itself, and from the paths he follows, this imaginative terrain is created. There are a number of young artists working with this idea of meandering graphic line at the moment, to the extent that it’s almost becoming a bit of a genre in itself, but for us Chinwook’s work has a distinct edge, and really stands out for its ambition and fluidity.
