Korean-born Guhee Kim is a visual communicator and contemporary illustrator, working under the name Da.Kim. Following her BA (Hons) Fashion Illustration studies at London College of Fashion, Kim recently graduated from MA Visual Arts: illustration at Camberwell College of Arts. Da Kim's illustration practice explores the lack of connectedness in our contemporary society along with the meaning of being human in the twenty-first century. In Kim’s recent body of work, Human Disconnection, a series of acrylic painted illustrations present key themes of disconnection, isolation, social anxiety and the everyday, through the symbolic figure of the humanised cactus. Disconnected humans, in a contemporary world of cactuses with thorny spines, are depicted in domestic, indoor and outdoor environments to evoke hope for reconnection. Da.Kim’s work was exhibited at Apple in Bond St, London and awarded by World Illustration Awards by The Association of Illustrators and 3x3 International Illustration Show No.16.
