As a student, his love of art grew as he studied the techniques of many impressionistic styles from around the world.
After Kim graduated from college in 1976, he received third place in the Gusang Art Exhibition. He was widely recognized as an oil painting artist when, in 1977, he was awarded the great honor of first place from the Buddhism Art Exhibition at the Hyundai Art Gallery in Seoul. After graduation, Kim pursued his dream of becoming an artist. Like many great artists, he traveled in search of inspiration and the perfect subject. He
has traveled to the United States, Mexico, Japan, England, Italy, and France.
Kim's love of landscapes is shown vividly through his artwork. He has developed his painting style to express his love of European landscaping, especially the Mediterranean Sea and English gardens. He expresses lifelike landscapes through impressionistic styles with a combination of strong and soft brushstrokes. Kim doesn't limit himself just to one
landscape; he also paints old buildings rich with flowers with the Mediterranean Sea in the background. He especially likes to paint the "Colmar" street alleys and "Aix Provence" from France.
Kim's masterpieces are popularized by his delightful and vibrant choice of colors. Kim brings out the sense of peace in his landscapes and a cozy warm feeling in his French and Italian street scenes. One notices the appreciation of life and nature Kim instills unto his paintings. In his 30 years of painting, Kim has accumulated numerous accolades. His
work has been displayed in a countless number of exhibitions including Hyundai Art Gallery in Korea, Gallery Birmingham in London, Mokwoo Artist Festival, Gusang Art Festival, the Didimdol Artist Association, Exhibition at Seoul Art Center, Fine Art Pavilion at Atlanta Decor Expo, and International Artexpo New York.
