About Myeongbeom

Myeongbeom Kim received his MFA in sculpture from the School of The Art Institute of Chicago in 2008. Previously, he studied environmental sculpture at University of Seoul, South Korea.

Kim’s installations and sculpture contain both man-made and natural elements, with the aim to accomplish surreal and dream-like spaces.

He often incorporates suspension and living creatures confined in light bulbs or helium balloons, to produce a sense of wonderment.

His work has been exhibited in the United States as well as in South Korea.
