A Yeong Kim

A Yeong Kim loves art and design, making the Visual Art program a natural fit.

“My favourite thing about the Visual Art program is that there’s no limit. I can expand my ideas, and create pieces that deliver messages and show my thoughts. Interacting with different artists, professors and friends has supported my studies, and there’s still so much more to learn”.

Kim’s artistic practice draws on different cultural influences. Her work challenges notions of perfection and success, questioning how people alter themselves to meet standards set by society.   

The School for the Contemporary Arts student has shown her work at exhibitions, and created displays and photography for restaurants.

Kim’s photography skill has been recognized by Canon Canada, who awarded her a Canon Canada Photography Prize in 2016.
