Woo Jin KIM
WooJIn KIM(b.1987/Republic of Korea) is one of the beloved sculptors in Korea. He uses Plastics and stainless steel to express animals that he wanted to raise since his childhood. In expressing those animals, KIM focuses on emotional expression rather than external similarity. His colors are fragments of memories that solve and implement his childhood, and the linked objects with colors breathe life into his work(sculpture). KIM released more than 600 works until today, and he has been showing his ability through a number of public artworks in Korea. He is now growing in the Korean Art Market by making his work a landmark nationwide.
