Hye Soo Kim was born and raised in Seoul, South Korea. She received her MFA from the School of Visual Arts and her BFA in Fine Arts from Korea National University of Arts. Kim currently lives and works in New York. 

The idea of Kim’s painting is based on a recollection of her personal experience with certain feelings, such as nervousness and anxiety for possibilities to have lost that memory in the future. In her work, she explores highlighted materiality and intense colors, and represents her feelings and moods at specific places.
