Kim Yong Hyun(b.1983) currently lives and works in South Korea. Kim’s oeuvre embodies the discordance between the reality and the ideals. The artist’s such interest began with the perception of the discrepancy. One may have a big dream but face reality. Our physical body may place the limit on our great mentality.
The work is a visual manifestation of the conflict and emotions that result from the collision of the two concepts. The dynamism of partially abstract forms and arbitrary colours renders unsettling narrative. Indefinite tension, disappointment, or confusion resonate in his work.
