Jaeseok Kim


Born in Seoul, South Korea, Jaeseok Kim has been interested in art from a young age, beginning his artistic career later in his life when his wife encouraged him to start painting as a means of leisure. Kim quickly discovered an immense passion for painting and has continued to develop his creative process producing textured, abstracted work that juxtaposes light and shadow, as well as the delicate in contrast to sharp forms.

Kim aims to create a dialogue about the modern world through his work; addressing pervasive themes of loneliness, mechanization, corruption, and competition. His color palette and gestural compositions exude hope while reflecting on the difficulties of human life.
