Kim Jintaek


1982 Born in Seoul, Korea Now lives in Beijing and Hong Kong

   Kim Jintaek is a Contemporary korean artist, he works in fine arts media--painting and sculpture as well as instalation art. 

  Worked as a carpenter by trade and studied sculpture in Kook Min University, Seoul, Kim Jintaek profoundly recognised that thousands of trees were cut for the sake of human’s convenience, and so much wood is wasted; thus through his experience of working with lumber, trees become a tool  for his self reflection and meditation on the world. He utilises the wasted wood shaves in his art work, and furthermore old metals, unwanted wood from demolished houses in Beijing, bones and coffee grounds etc. By making use of these useless items, the artist redefined them with a new meaning and value.
