Chang Soo Kim

Korean artist and professor at the College of Art and Design at Kyungwon University in Seoul

Chang Soo Kim, Korean artist and professor at the College of Art and Design at Kyungwon University in Seoul, will give an illustrated lecture in which he discusses his work. Professor Kim is a distinguished  artist in the field of contemporary printmaking. His works are primarily developed and printed digitally, using video images he has taken on the streets of Seoul. His medium to large-scale works on paper or metal serve to innovatively extend the boundaries of contemporary printmaking as they explore the relationship of digital media to the individual and contemporary society at large.

In addition to having exhibited extensively internationally, in the past several  years Professor Kim has won several prizes in major international print exhibitions. In 2007, he won the Main Prize at the 9th International Biennial of Drawing and Graphic Arts, in Gyo, Hungary, for which he was awarded a solo exhibition at the 10th Biennial in the fall of 2009. Further, he received a Sponsor Prize in Open Print at the RWAGallery, Bristol, England in 2008, and he received an award at the Krakow 2003 International Print Triennial in Poland in 2003.
