Kim Ho Deuk (b.1950) is an acclaimed pioneering artist who has pushed the envelope of ink painting. His abstracted landscape ink painting pays homage to traditional techniques while being uniquely contemporary. Kim's landscape paintings are conceptually minimal yet bold and spontaneous. He applies ink in a brush stroke that is a singular psychically expressive act. The artist has emphasized the momentary expression as emblematic of importance of each moment of existence.
His works have been shown at Seoul National University Museum of Art, Tainan Municipal Art Center, and Lee Ungno Museum, among others.
