Kim Tschang-Yeul (b. 1929) was born in the North of a then-Unified Korea and migrated to the South later to escape the Communist regime. He studied in New York and later settled in Paris, where he began developing his signature motif--the drop of water. Kim’s hyperreal drops navigate between diverse modes of abstract expressionism, minimalism, and photorealism. Kim referred to his unceasing act of painting as a remedy for him to erase traumatic memories of the Korean War.
