Danym Kwon

Danym Kwon (b. 1982) is a Korean-American artist with roots in the San Francisco Bay Area. Finding inspiration in everyday life, Kwon uses scenes around her to create images that embody warmth, comfort, and an optimistic perspective. As the artist passes through unforeseen hardships in life, she discovers gratitude and joy for her surroundings. To cherish and appreciate these moments in life even more, the artist wants to see them from a new perspective by staging them in still lifes, such as flower vases and piles of laundry, in a surreal manner. The artist invites viewers to find moments of happiness and rest inside everyday moments, as well as through her soft colors on the canvas.

Kwon received both her BFA and MFA from Ewha Women’s University in Seoul, Korea. She has shown at Ilmin Museum in Seoul, with Hashimoto Contemporary in New York and San Francisco, and at the Palo Alto Art Center.
