Minjung Kim is a contemporary Korean artist best known for her subtle formal compositions on layered paper. Committed to re-interpreting traditional Korean aesthetics, Kim employs a process-based organization of her thoughts, problems, and whims in each of her artworks. Often colorful and staccato, The artist describes her calligraphic work in emotional terms: “The movement, the colors, they are so calm and peaceful,” she says. “They are my state of mind.” Born in 1962 in Gwangju, Republic of Korea, Kim was encouraged by her family to pursue her artistic inclination from an early age, studying under famed water colorist Yeongun Kang. She later enrolled at the Hong Ik University in Seoul from 1980 until 1985 and later graduated from the Brera Academy in Milan in 1991, where she developed an interest in the abstract works of Paul Klee and Franz Kline. Kim has received numerous honors and high critical acclaim throughout her career, such as her inclusion among important collections like the Fondazione Palazzo Bricherasio in Torino and the Museum Sbygningen in Copenhagen. She currently lives and works in between France and the United States.
