Artist Spotlight: BongJung Kim

I read, in the Guggenheim Museum, that Peggy Guggenheim bought a painting a day before starting her own museum in  New York. While I can’t quite do the same, I did promise myself to take more time to explore the artists around me and to bring artist spotlights to my blog. It’s my way of showing my appreciation to the artists around us for shedding light on their perspective of our world.

I had the honor of attending the opening for BongJung Kim’s Temptation earlier this month, and was reminded how perspective changes everything. Artist Kim’s gallery opening demonstrates his unique perspective on the electronic age. So, it is with great pleasure that my first artist spotlight is on Artist Kim’s collection. I’ve taken a few pictures to give you a taste of the collection, but I urge you to visit the collection yourself. It is currently on display in the Paris Koh Fine Arts (location) from April 4 until April 22 (flyer below).
