Dan-ah Kim is a Korean artist who was born in Seoul but has lived around the world from Mexico to both coasts of the U.S.A. She attended Pratt Institute and now lives and works in Brooklyn New York. Kim is drawn to the chaotic and collaborative film environment as well as the isolated experience of an illustrator. She enjoys her illustration work because it gives her the chance to work and explore her creativity individually.
Kim is influenced by travel maps, antiquated books, myths and adventures and also has a love for layers with separated materials, using ink, paint, paper, and thread. Kim aims to make each painting a frame from a story, with heroines in familiar or unnatural worlds. You can find her site here, her etsy shop here and thinkspace gallery that features her work here.
