Myeongbeom Kim, is a sculptor who currently lives and works in Seoul and Chicago. He graduated from the Art Institute of Chicago receiving his MFA in Sculpture. Previously, he studied environmental sculpture at University of Seoul, South Korea.
Kim’s installations and sculpture contain both man-made and natural elements, with the aim to accomplish surreal and dream-like spaces. He often incorporates suspension and living creatures confined in light bulbs or helium balloons, to produce a sense of wonderment.
Myeongbeom Kim 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.
