Jinchul Kim was born in South Korea. Before coming to the United States in the late 1980’s, he earned BFA and MFA degrees from King Sejong University in Seoul. He then came to the states and settled in New York City where he attended the School of Visual Arts, earning a second MFA degree in 1992. SVA is one of the top art schools in New York, and, indeed, in the entire country. After SVA, Mr. Kim studied for two years at The Art Student’s League, a famous center of traditional figure painting in downtown New York. In the mid 1990’s Mr. Kim came to Delmarva. He taught classes at the Rehoboth Art League and the Art League of Ocean City before coming to Salisbury University in 2006. He heads the Painting area here at Salisbury, and the work of Painting majors is always a highlight of the senior shows. Mr. Kim is a very active professional artist. His work has been exhibited in university and commercial galleries up and down the east coast of the US, and he has also been included in several major international art fairs. He is represented by galleries in Korea, China and Washington, DC, as well as local galleries in Rehoboth Beach and Snow Hill. A solo exhibition of recent work was in the Atrium Gallery at Salisbury University April 27-May 19, 2012.
