A word from Artist Kim Hyun

My work originates from a longing for my childhood, which I remember fondly as being full of joy and curiosity. My childhood was by far the warmest, most innocent and emotionally stable period of my life. Life as an adult can be uncertain, and at times like this I take refuge through my art by searching for that curious kid again. To me, drawings are a response to longing and a passage that allows me to escape from everyday life. I usually cover warm, sensitive and universal topics in my work. I like to tell familiar stories that nearly anyone can relate to from their own childhood experiences. Games, toys, friends, and nature are good subjects for art so I take these and use them to explore subjects like innocence, dreams, illusions, happiness, warmth and excitement.

As I work, I try to make my pieces resemble children’s drawings as much as I can without contaminating them with adultness. The freshness and honesty in my work draws me closer to the masses and allows me the pleasure of giving others who have slipped into adulthood a chance to look back at themselves in the past, an unconditional smile, and a break from the every day.
