Junha Kim / 김준하 1993.11.11


Junha Kim is a digital artist based in LA and Seoul.
He had his BAS in Art&Technology at Sogang University.
From 2020, he is currently pursuing his MFA in Art&Technology, School of Art, at California Institute of the Arts.
 

With surrealistic 3D Images distorting material, form, or context, Junha Kim produces digital works that question ordinary images and experience. He is skeptical of any concrete ideology and loves to create mysteries and fantasies with experimental digital images. His art practice aims to visually confuse the audience and tries to blur any existing boundaries such as human/non-human/machine or reality/fantasy. Even his artistic media try to challenge conventional art genres by confusing viewers whether his work is real or digital, sculpture or image.

His computer graphic works have been selected by many qualified shows such as Japan Media Arts Festival, SIGGRAPH ASIA, and SICAF. Also, he has exhibited his media Installations at Lotte World Tower, theaters, and many art galleries.
