Genie Kim

Painting, Booth 815

Genie was born and raised in South Korea, and graduated from the School of Fine Arts, Hongik University, in Seoul. In her paintings Genie uses multiple layers of acrylic-hybrid paints to achieve the effect of traditional Korean pigment-based paints, resulting in a distinctly non-western texture and palette. The aim of her work, which is illustrative and playful, is to tell stories filled with whimsical joy -- but stories which also echo with pensive, reflective undertones.
