About the Author

Yongsung Kim

I spent my youth in the beautiful countryside of Korea, which is rich with the emotion that I hope is captured in my paintings. I started painting in middle school and spent much of my time growing up drawing.

After I became an adult, I began to worry about the path my life would lead, so I prayed. Through the inspiration I gained while painting, I decided I would live a life devoted to bringing glory to God. Even though I didn’t formally study painting, I felt I had been blessed with natural talent and aesthetic taste and I began a life as a Christian artist.

With much love and affection for my family, I strive to live as an example of a devoted Christian father. My family includes my wife, a daughter who aspires to be an animator, and a son who hopes to be a guitarist.

The main theme and focus of my paintings are consistently and primarily Jesus Christ and Christianity. Co-artists have asked me if it was necessary to intentionally include Christ in every piece. They have even suggested I remove Christ and paint a likeness or euphemism of him. In a world with an increasing culture of violence and darkness, in addition to decreasing bright and clean depictions of religion, I want to shed Christ’s light on this new generation. So I deal with subjects of Christ, as the “Good Shepherd” with His flock and Christ’s “Love and Grace”, and “Beautiful Christ” as major themes.

Rather than the world’s standard of a heavy and grim depiction of Jesus Christ, I seek to work with that which is easy to understand, that which resonates with the sympathies and emotions we feel. Rather than complex or difficult art, I focus on a bright, righteous, and beautiful idea of Christ, utilizing portrayals of familiar scenes of nature to help it enter the heart of the observer.

TO THE BEAUTIFUL POINT!
By , Submitted on 2019-04-30

With BEAUTY & a lovely eye for color & depth, I like this artist! With his depiction of our Lord Jesus reaching into the "abyss." ( not really just WHAT I call it!) I thought this piece was lovely, on point, spoke soo much without saying a WORD & after all...isn't THAT the point of good art? I think it is! I applaud this artist & really " get" what he's saying here. YOU should enjoy him too, he's THAT GOOD!!!
