About The Artist

Born in Seoul, Korea, Steve Kim immigrated to the states at the age of two. He received his undergraduate degree from Art Center College of Design in 2006 and his masters from Claremont Graduate University in 2010. His work has been featured in New American Paintings pacific and 15th anniversary editions. He has shown in Portland, Berkeley, and throughout Los Angeles. He lives and works in Los Angeles.

Steve Kim paints everyday scenes from his life in an attempt to transform visual experience. Using photographs of seemingly mundane events, Kim renders them almost unrecognizable by employing a skewed perspective, leaving large sections of canvas blank and morphing everyday events into something uncanny and unsettling.
