WATTI H. KIM

김와띠 [金孝蓮]

Since her childhood, she has been consistently studying art, painting in various organizations. She entered BUSAN high school of Art (2001), learned the foundation of painting, design, and history of art. In 2004, she entered the KONKUK UNIVERSITY, College of Art&Design, Fashion, Seoul, Korea. But she was fascinated by movies dealing with people’s ‘Everyday Life’ and ‘Fantasy’ rather than fashion design. Her aspiration for Narrative Art like Films and photos, gradually became bigger and bigger. During the university years, she traveled around the world- 18 countries for 2 years (2007-8), like a hippie. Devoted herself to experiencing a new world with people and new values. After traveling, she settled down in Spain, Barcelona(2009) for a year, learning Spanish. After graduating from university, joined a ‘JO HWA SEONG’ Movie Art-Production design team (2011). And she made about 5 movies for 2 years. During the period of design ‘Mise en Scène’ of films, she felt much more interested in creating a single complete, beautiful scene. Then in 2013, she released her first photo-collage series, titled ‘ Very Reality Show’, which was photographed around the world. Energetically, she continues to work on her photography and experiment with other media genres. Currently attending HONGIK UNIVERSITY, M.F.A. in Photography, Seoul, Korea.
