Introduction

Considered as a major artist in Korea, the people call him "Master" in his native land. His particularity is to paint a formal recurring motif: a water drop, created as a trompe-l'oeil.


Kim Tschang-Yeul was born in 1929 in Maing-San, a small village in North korea, under Japanese occupation. In 1933, his paternal grand-father, a great calligrapher, introduced him to the ancestral art of calligraphy. In the spirit of Tao and of Confucianism, the young Kim repeats indefinitely the outline of ideograms. 


In 1942, he attends the highschool of Pyong-Yang and discovers the works of old masters, notably Leonardo DeVinci. While he practices painting, his father encourages him to study law. In 1946, to flee from communism and the power in place, he decides to leave on his own to South Korea. He goes to a workshop where he discovers a strong preference for charcoal, and learns English and French. In 1949, he studies art history and oil painting at the National University of Seoul. From 1950 to 1953, dots and monochrome lines caracterize his first informal canvases, bearing the memory of the Korean war, to which he will be sent on the Island of Jeju.


In 1954, he is appointed director of he Seoul Police Libary, for which he acquires books of art, philosophy, economics and politics. In the years following 1955, he begins a career teaching art in highschools of Seoul and its region. During the same period of time, while working as an assistant in the Li Bong-Sang workshop, he meets artists with whom he creates a group that will begin the Association Hyundai movement - an association of korean contemporary artists ("hyundai" meaning "contemporary" in Korean). According to Kim: "It was the opportunity to grasp  all that was important in Western production in order to excahnge between us and feed our thinking. We progressed step by step: from Cézanne to Cubism to Dad, from surrealism to informal movement." This association will give rise to a large number of exhibitions between 1957 and 1960, helping to support the visibility of contemporary art in Korea.


Between 1965 and 1969, Kim goes to New York with to the support of the Rockefeller Foundation. He attends the new york Art Student League. This period opens up influences for him such as Rothko or Bacon and becomes decisive in Kim's work. It is at that period that he discovers the foundational and philosophical motif of the drop of water as well as his taste for abstraction.


Today, living in between France and Korea, he spends most of his time in Seoul, and accompanies the creation of a Museum that is dedicated to him on the Jeju Island, to which he donates a part of his works. The museum opened in the autumn of 2016.
