Description

Sung Eun Kim

b. 1985

 

Sung Eun Kim’s paintings capture and re-state the urban landscape by finding moments of beauty in everyday city life through his devoted consideration of light and color. From early morning fog to the hazy darkness of night, the varied characteristics of light provide fuel for Kim’s interpretation as both observer and artist. To Kim, illumination is the catalyst that lends the city its character, adding emotion and warmth where there would otherwise be none.

 

Sung Eun Kim completed his BFA in Painting & Drawing in 2010 at the California College of the Arts, and graduated in 2015 with an MFA in Painting from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. Based in the Bay Area, Kim has exhibited and earned acclaim both nationally and internationally. He lives and maintains a studio practice in Alameda.
