Dongyoo Kim

Born: 1965

Hometown: Kongju, South Korea

Lives and Works: South Korea

 

Korean artist Kim Dong Yoo became globally-recognized due to his famous 'Face' series, composed of hundreds of tiny, individual portraits of famous figures, rendered entirely by hand. Yet, Kim Don Yoo goes beyond pure portrayal of the icons of popular culture. His focus on creating image within the image made him apply an obsessive, perfectionist vision to the works that evoke the history of Op Art, while his paintings defy the urge to visually apprehend everything at once.

Kim was born in 1965 in Kongju Korea, and received his BFA & MFA from Mokwon University. He has had solo exhibitions in New York, Munich, and major Korean cities. He has also participated in various group exhibitions in Seoul, Hong Kong, Kazakhstan, Singapore, Miami, Stockholm, London & more!
