Philippe Hyojung Kim (b. 1989) grew up in a small town outside of Nashville, TN, adopted and raised by a single Jewish mother. Philippe often experiments with various materials and mediums, in response to his immediate surroundings to create poured paint-made objects that exist in the space between painting and sculpture. His work references queer identity, artificiality, and language while refraining from traditional figurative representation. Philippe is a current member of SOIL Artist-Run Gallery and a co-founder/curator of Specialist (, an experimental art space/gallery in downtown Seattle. Philippe received his MFA in Painting from Central Washington University, and he currently lives and works in Seattle with his husband, Drew, and their dog, Jack.  Web:  Instagram: @philippepirrip
