Kim Joon – We-Red Devil, 2005

Kim Joon. We-Red Devil, 2005. Digital print,120×192 cm.

Born in Seoul in 1966, Kim Joon still lives and work in hometown.

Kim describes his creative development as shaped by the fantasy and artifice of imported American commercial culture, from rock music to Hollywood. The significance of this foreign media presence following on a wartime presence is not lost on the artist. He recalls the impact of listening to American military radio as a youth in Seoul and internalizing the new global identity of “Pop” capitalism as ally, consumerism as shared identity.
