Minjoo KIM (김민주) Artist Biography

Artist Statement


Kim is a London-based narrative painter who were born and raised in South Korea.
Her work addresses the formation and re-negotiation of cultural identity, drawing from her own experience growing up in a conservative Korean context. Since moving to London in 2016, Kim was confronted with a radically unfamiliar cultural environment which led to a range of new perspectives on beauty, femininity, and social relations. Her ongoing research is the result of this continually expanding focus, encompassing a broad investigation of the social and political issues surrounding the identity of women, particularly from her own East Asian milieu. The subjects of her paintings, primarily women, are drawn from real-life but depicted in an imaginary setting, or as Kim describes it, ‘a virtual narrative’.
