Meta River

Kim Young-Hun (b. 1964 in Nonsan, South Korea)

Date: 16 March – 29 April 2023

Opening: 16 March (Thursday) 6 – 8pm

Venue: Soluna Fine Art, GF, 52 Sai Street, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong


Soluna Fine Art is proud to present Meta River, the third solo exhibition of the contemporary Korean painter Kim Young-Hun with the gallery. The exhibition will feature fourteen new oil painting works completed in 2022 from the artist’s signature oeuvre, ‘Electronic Nostalgia’, which Kim has been developing for over ten years. Kim’s binary visual language, as seen in the vibrant stripes of colors, reflects the various waves of infinite time and space that mankind experience in the 21st-century digital age, and the traditional Korean painting technique called Hyuk-pil (革筆畫), highlighting the plasticity of colors and expressions of oil painting medium in the analog world. Meta River will be on view from 16 March – 29 April, with an opening reception on 16 March (Thur) at 6 – 8pm.

About Kim Young-Hun 金永憲

Kim Young-Hun (b. 1964 in Nonsan, South Korea) is currently based between New York City and Seoul. He obtained B.F.A. in painting from Hongik University and holds two M.F.A. from Chelsea College of Art and Design and Goldsmiths College in London. Living through the transition between the analog and digital generations, Kim is passionate about observing and deciphering the unknown between the 1 and 0 binary codes. His works demonstrate a traditional Korean painting technique called Hyuk-pil (革筆畫), in which the painter mixes various colors and paints with rapid strokes using a leather brush. The multi-colored stripes that seem to flow like ink are made by one continuous brush stroke across the canvas, with the oil colors melting together and permeating into the canvas. Kim has exhibited extensively internationally, with over 10 solo and 60 group exhibitions. His paintings are in several prestigious public and corporate collections, including Bank of America, The Arts Club, and numerous museums.
