Born in South Korea and raised in the Bay Area, Nahyun Kim is an artist currently based in SF. She is inspired by the cyclical aspects of our existence and the rebirths that can happen when we trust ourselves. How can we be more playful when we find ourselves on the path between longing and action? Her oil paintings are a testament to her personal experiences as a Korean-American woman. They are shrines of the authentic self within.

Nahyun earned her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Carnegie Mellon University in 2012. She makes oil paintings, drawings and poems out of her home studio near Ocean Beach.
