Kim Byungkwan is a South Korean illustrator, painter, and motion graphics artist.
What I would like to express through my work is very simple.
I am trying to bring out strangeness from familiarity (visual habit). Everything there is out there in this world, more or less, provides familiar vision. This familiar vision can be replaced as a habit. This habitual vision which every object gives us and creates comfort. However, it shuts down all the other possibilities. The habitual vision or visual habit makes us go by the routine ways. It stops us from having an adventure and checking out the wonders out there.
My work is trying to destroy, tear up, and reconstruct this habitual vision so that our vision can be expanded to other images.
