There is something incredibly poetic about Myeombeom Kim's work. This poetic quality has very much to do with the fact that he has an amazingly unique take on his surroundings and on life in general. Despite each sculpture's surreal nature, there is most often a concrete idea or ideal to walk away with.

Born in Seoul, South Korea, Myeombeom Kim holds an MFA in Sculpture from The Art Institute of Chicago. Yet no amount of schooling could have taught him how to harness his creativity into these stunning sculptures. Minimalist and also mind-boggling, Myeombeom Kim's work centers around nature. Often, he introduces nature in the form of trees, flowers and even fish into man-made places and scenarios.
