Born in 1979, in Los Angeles and based in Oakland, California, Dave Young Kim draws from his Korean culture and personal experiences in depicting ideas of identity, as well as the human condition. He attended the University of California Davis before earning an MFA at Mills College.

My work is an exploration of identity through looking into the past at my native Korean culture, examining my Los Angeles upbringing (the formative years), drawing inspiration from my present home in West Oakland, and looking into the future at how the human condition strips away everything and lands us at a place of common humanity.  Ultimately, my work is premised on the idea that we are all on a journey looking for that place to call home.
