ABOUT

J Kim is a visual artist based in Melbourne. She works predominantly as an illustrator, animator and a concept artist. She is also known as Pentraveller on social medias.
J Kim's works represent a wide range of imagery, style and depth but she has always been focused on depicting people's life. She has explored the unique ways of creating art within social problems and politic issues. Her art work is highly evocative and she has a strong sense of showing the emotions that individuals face when suffering or disadvantaged. She has been on a journey to uncover, understand and artistically represent what, how and why people live (especially the underground), work, interact and even suffer.
Through this process she is highlighting and bringing forward the need for understanding and visibility.
J Kim is often found in places where she can observe the everyday and how people interact or generally go about life. Her interests are movement with particular detail on eyes, faces, gestures and characteristics. Through this observation and the simple use of a black pen she creates and captures the very essence of the moment.

“ The simplicity of a black line on white paper and the creation of the moment is the most beautiful thing in the world.” - J Kim
