Kim Tschang-Yeul

Text by Michel Enrici.

A comprehensive survey on painter Kim Tschang-Yeul, a critical figure in Korean contemporary art

Korean painter Kim Tschang-Yeul (born 1929), alongside Nam June Paik, initiated the contemporary art movement in Korea. This book provides a chronology of Tschang-Yeul’s career, featuring reproductions of his hyper-realistic water-droplet paintings alongside essays and an artist interview.


PRAISE AND REVIEWS

New York Times

Jason Farago

More exciting is a new monograph of the painter Kim Tschang-yeul, now 90, who was a contemporary of the Dansaekhwa painters but violated their prohibition on imagery in the form of trompe-l’oeil water droplets that bead and drip from his canvases. For Mr. Kim, a refugee from North Korea who speaks even today of the trauma of the peninsular war, these water drop paintings effect a strange melding of hyperrealism and abstraction, always trying but never succeeding to come to terms with the past.
