Cheol Yu Kim


Cheol Yu Kim (above) is a Korean artist who’s work is currently being shown at the CUE Art Foundation
. His drawings and watercolors combine incredible skill with abstracted imagery of flying and swimming things. The work is hieroglyphic in style and suggests the elaborate stories of a child’s imagination. Aside from the new Richard Serra Torqued Ellipses (below) at the Gagosian
, this was the best art I saw all weekend. The Serra pieces were mind blowing, as usual. This series just keeps getting better with each iteration.
