Kyung Bouhours

Born in 1967 - South Korea


Kyung Bouhours was born in South Korea in 1967. She came to France at the age of 11. Initially a student at Ecole Nationale Supérieure Estienne, she graduated in 1989 and then went to Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris. She graduated in 1995, and was ready to devote herself to her passion, painting.

Kyung Bouhours works in a decommissioned factory of Haut-Rhin and got inspired from her own workshop. The artist's paintings have an industrial decor, filled with strange creatures bordering surrealism, a little like Salvador Dali. This unique world combines reality and imagination. Kyung Bouhours's paintings are like a dream where strangeness and reality join forces to create an extraordinary world.

Kyung Bouhours does oil painting and alternates figures, symbols, unexpected situations and objects so that the spectator can see her paintings through different angles.
