After studying engineering, completing two years of military service, and running a business in international trade and economics, Jonathan Kim moved from South Korea to Australia with his wife and awoke a once-dormant creative flair. Seeking something new that fulfilled his creative desire that had, until now, been denied by societal pressure, Jonathan began creating art. In 2018, he graduated from UniSA with a Bachelor of Contemporary Art with honours in art and design. Jonathan also spent time studying and practising art at the British School in Rome, Italy. Currently undertaking a residency at ACE Open, Jonathan’s works revolve largely around Post-Minimalism, and he excitingly blends his Western involvement of art and study with his South Korean cultural upbringing and experience.
Verse’s arts contributor, Christina Massolino, sat down with Jonathan to discuss his life experiences, minimalist theories and approach to art.
