Heesoo Kim

Kim is a versatile artist who works with a variety of mediums, including watercolour, acrylic, coloured pencil, and pen. He is particularly interested in creating portraits that capture a sense of stillness and immobility, as if frozen in time. Kim’s work is influenced by the themes of memory, longing, and imagination, which he explores through his fragmented figurations. His use of light and dark also lends a sense of volume and depth to his portraits, drawing inspiration from chiaroscuro techniques. With these techniques, Kim successfully evokes the spirit of Picasso’s Cubist paintings, while also creating a unique style that is entirely his own.
