Hyun Jun Im

Hyun Jun Im

Hyun Jun Im was born, raised, and currently lives in Seoul, South Korea. Im received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1999 and is currently working towards a Master of Fine Arts degree at Namseoul University.

Prior to entering the Master’s program at Namseoul, Im worked as a sculptor for one of his current professors, which expanded his abilities to work with a variety of materials and visual expressions. In his current work, Im uses glass fiber and glass yarn. He hopes to show the truth behind daily used, seemingly mundane objects. Examples of these objects include cushions, telephones, pillows, plates, and pipes. He magnifies these objects with the intent to reveal the hidden truth of their function.

 

Im has shown in many gallery exhibitions including AP Gallery, Lee & Park Gallery, Biim Gallery, and the Haeundae Cultural Center in Busan.
