More About Hyunah Kim

Question IconWhat inspires you?

I sometimes get asked about my creative work, and I feel very proud that most of my paintings were created through my voluntary ideas and collections. There are objects around me that I can not think of or imagine, and there are a lot of tools in my studio waiting for my hand.

Question IconDescribe your creative process.

I am using a very traditional approach when I make my art. After I prepare my canvas, I put some texture, and start to think about the composition. The process of making my art is an intellectual play, like a game, it evolves till I think it's done. I use mostly acrylic paints because it dries fast which makes it easy for me to work with. However, I love oil paints too. It has more vivid and deep freshness. No tricks!
