Jace Junggyu Kim

Jace Junggyu Kim is a Canadian painter currently based in Vancouver, BC. He was born and raised in Korea where he was highly influenced by comic book art until the age of 15. He graduated Emily Carr University of Art and Design with a bachelor’s degree in Media art (animation) with the passion of animator. He worked in various game and motion graphic companies as a digital artist but he made a drastic transition to become a traditional painter. 

Creating the most of the tension between the figurative and the abstract, his expression on canvas arises from the meeting and combination of various artistic materials; oil, acrylic, ink, spray paint and so on. An abstract chaos capable of giving rise to an emotional overlap plays as a background to the purity and refinement of the portraiture depicted with both obsessive and expressive brush strokes. 

He wishes to continuously grow as a contemporary artist with his distinctive ambidextrous style and techniques. His left hand is masculine and expressive opposing to his right that is feminine and articulated. When he uses them simultaneously he becomes most sensitively concentrated within the struggle and harmony of being  in-between.
