He has participated in the illustrations for Marvel Comics' Ghost Rider series and DC Comics' Wildcats series, among others.

From his quiet demeanour, you would never have guessed that he had once pursued acting in Korea.

Unlike the other three artists from SuperAni (their art agency) who candidly acted out funny anecdotes from their art school days, Kim sat quietly and drew on his notepad while observing the rest.

First art residency with Temenggong

Together with Hyun Jin Kim, Dong Ho Kim and Jae Kwang Park, Kim is here in Singapore for an artist residency with Temenggong Artists-in-Residence.

This residency — a first for SuperAni artists — allows them to develop new ideas and work on new art while staying in Temenggong.

And it is not just Kim who is clearly passionate about art.

The other artists also spent their residency drawing whenever and wherever they could — even on a napkin during dinner.

While these random napkin sketches will not be on sale, interested fans can get their hands on other sketches done during the residency.

On Sep. 16 and 17, they will be conducting a book signing and opening an exhibition that is free to visit for the public.

Limited copies of art books and prints by the artists will be also be available for purchase.

On Sep. 16, art enthusiasts will also have the opportunity to witness the artists in action as they conduct lectures and live drawing sessions.

First art exhibition by SuperAni artists in Southeast Asia

While they have traveled around the world sharing their art, this is the first time that they are here in Singapore as well as Southeast Asia.

Moreover, it is the first time that they are holding an exhibition in the region as well.

The four are eager to meet their fans and fellow artists, and hope to connect with them.

Despite the language barrier, artists, including themselves, want to extend their creativity worldwide and connect with many different cultures, Hyun Jin Kim shared.
