I’m pretty sure that you will LOVE Kim and her art. Why? Because this ART is exactly that supposed to be born at right time and the right place. She is a digital artist who combines reality with fashion trends and put a little touch of her own magic world to create an actual ART. Would I name it pop art? Maybe. But it’s pretty cool.
L.: How old are you and where are you from?
M.: My name is Mond Kim, 25 years old. I’m from South Korea.
L.: What is your Art about? What is the message you bring to the world?
M.: I’m interested in showing my world and fantasy. It is the message itself. If someone feels that my work is close to Surrealism, it might be right. I want to express the universe that doesn’t exist. It’s similar but a different kind of reality, like a parallel world.
L.: What is your biggest inspiration?
M.: Nature and Fashion. They are almost everywhere in my works.
L.: Do you like fashion? Why?
M.: Same reason I like to see nature. Both of them are powerful and unpredictable. Fashion has a huge strength of community about the industry like a hurricane. And sometimes, It’s like the evening sun paints the clouds. Nature and Fashion always exists, but there will always be some variation also. They never get boring. That’s why I like them.
L.: Tell me more about your story? What is going on with your social media?
M.: My social media (Instagram) is an open window. Mostly I stare out the closed windows. And sometimes I open one of them and look out, That’s the post ing on Instagram. It’s small but enough space for something to circulate.
L.: How do you think, who is your main audience?
M.: Dreamer or Realist.
L.: Which countries and cities do you find most inspiring? Which ones do you want to visit?
M.: From Tokyo to Las Vegas, It was rare to feel inspired by the travel. I think because I didn’t look deep into myself first.
Inspiration is a bottle of paint. If I fill my bottle so full that the paint spilled over, I can color the whole thing own my own.
When Finishing a journey inside, I hope to see a glacial lake and an aurora in Iceland, Canada, Finland, Norway…all or one of them.
L.: And the last one – imagine, you can choose any magical power. Which one would you choose?
