Kim Wan

artist biography


Kim Wan (b.1970) is a British artist of Malay-Chinese and English heritage. Kim Wan’s artworks are all painterly – whether it’s the obsessive exploration in his series of self-portraits, or the ‘decorated’ dollar bills contributing to large-scale major installations. Surprisingly graffiti has been a strong thread throughout his art career.

In the UK he has worked with museums and institutions such as the National Portrait Gallery, TATE Modern, the Institute of Contemporary Art and the National Gallery. International exhibitions include shows in New York, Miami, Philadelphia, Athens, Berlin, Siena, Beijing, Moscow and at the Louvre, Paris.
