In her native South Korea, Eunkyo ‘Unky’ Kim trained in pencil and colour theory.
After graduating, she worked as a designer and as a freelance illustrator.
But paints weren’t regularly part of her palette back then.
Now, she’s active with oils and acrylics — as well as digital media — to create “darkly humorous and sometimes creepy” images, she told the Port Moody Arts Centre, where, on Saturday, her painting Bookaholic will be featured as part of the four-week long Art 4 Life exhibit that opens during Culture Days, a national celebration of the arts, culture and heritage in our communities.
Art 4 Life ends Nov. 1.
