Angela Kim is a contemporary artist and a freelance instructor. Born in South Korea, raised in British Columbia, Angela currently resides in Toronto.
She began painting at the age of 11, but devoted herself to her artwork beginning in 2009. Her training includes OCAD, Emily Carr University, and apprenticeships with several established west-coast artists.
Her early work — classical-style portraits — was heavily influenced by Renaissance masters and French impressionism. Subjects included themes of humanism, the human condition, and human rights.
Her later work highlights human emotion and fragility through the use of abstract marks and strong colors transcending physical boundaries. Her mediums include oil painting, encaustic, plaster, charcoal, wood, bronze, and sand.
Angela’s works have been displayed in local galleries, featured in forums and magazines, and collected by individuals and corporations globally.
