Esther Doyeon Kim
Artist member since 2020
North York, ON
Esther Kim is a South Korean Canadian raised in Vancouver, currently a Toronto based artist. She majored in a Bachelor of Fine Arts: Drawing and Painting at OCAD University.
Kim’s work focuses on modifying existing and shared ideas in the past, endlessly build up an idea from exchanging her diverse perspective, personal value, and life experience combining digital and traditional medium. Working primarily in acrylic painting, she digitally draws, mixes, and selects pre-existing elements into new combinations and transfers the images onto canvas by playing around with colours, textures, forms, and lines into a vivid image form. Kim’s simple form, vibrant and bright palette expresses her unconscious desire to seek meanings of happiness and hope in life.
