"Kitsune Noir Diorama"
Los Angeles based artist Steve Kim says of his paintings: "Although I wish I could say otherwise, my paintings typically begin with an unpretentious, but slightly embarrassing, 'Hey, that’s neat. That looks fun to paint.'"
"Steve Kim paints everyday scenes from his life in an attempt to transform visual experience. Using photographs of seemingly mundane events, Kim renders them almost unrecognizable by employing a skewed perspective, leaving large sections of canvas blank and morphing everyday events into something uncanny and unsettling."
