BIOGRAPHY

 

 

Zin Lim was born in Seoul, South Korea. He liked drawing and studied basic drawing and color theory to prepare for an entrance test of art college. He majored industrial design as emphasis of Environmental design at Hong-Ik university (Hong Dae Ap, Shinchon in Seoul) that is located in the most dynamic area culturally and academically in South Korea. The indie culture and artistic diversity influenced him to have wide range of artistic perspective. In 2000, he moved to San Francisco, California to study 3-D Animation at Academy of Art University. Including past major, environment/product design, animation is also human related studies and require basic understanding of human circumstances and human body. During the foundation studies about human body and philosophy, he found he was more interested in human itself.

To him, fine art is the best forms to observe people, interpret by personal philosophy and express the aesthetics through visual message. Enjoyable time was given to continue study, update thinking and create arts. In 2006, Lim completed his MFA with distinction at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco with numerous top awards from the most prestigious U.S national and international competitions.He has been teaching painting and drawing courses at Graduate School of Fine Art / Illustration at Academy of Art University. And his teaching extended to workshops in various cities worldwide and video lectures through YouTube channel online. Zin Lim is creaing paintings, drawings and art videos at his art studio in Alameda, CA.
