QnA in Seoul | Kim Sam

Q&A in Seoul

sambypen

Finally a new Q&A in Seoul! This time the topic is art and the guest is Sam. I’ve visited two of his recent exhibitions and I can tell you that after just seeing one of his artwork, you can see how Sambypen has a clear and very recognizable style.

From his interview I agree the most about how hard is for young people to show their work. But I guess, as he also says, it’s long-run job so we just need to keep trying!

What do you do?

I create art and show it to people at exhibitions.

What do you aim for?

(I aim for being the most succesful artist in the world. lol) I want to be an artist who interacts with people & culture.

Disadvantages and difficulties in your profession

There’s no disadvantages nor difficulties.

It’s such a long-run job as an individual artist that it’s hard to get opportunities as a young artist.

Who or what inspires you?

Musicians

Why are you in Seoul?

When I was in NY for college, I couldn’t get any opportunity to show my personal artwork because I was there with a international student visa. I came here to begin my career.
