Myeongbeom Kim was born 1976 in Busan, he currently lives and works in Seoul and Chicago. Using themes of life and growth in nature Kim constructs stunning installations of surreal situations. With his installations he intends to describe his own experience in a placid manner through private conversations with his surrounding environment.
Myeongbeom mainly uses heterogeneous objects. He has consistently experienced his surrounding objects from the perspective of life, growth, and decline, which lends vitality to his work. Kim’s use of balloons is rather different than his typical nature infused environment that he creates. Balloons act in fantastical, irrational ways in the artist’s work.
Here are some of the surreal imagery by Myeongbeom Kim. You can also follow his on Instagram page @myeongbeomkim.
