Immortal Beloved

South Korean artist and animator Mari Kim returns to Pontone Gallery this summer with a new series of her distinctive “eyedoll” works.

Her anime-inspired images derive from a rich mixture of Western and Eastern cultural references.

Kim’s big-eyed, cartoon-like female characters are the protagonists of her ever-evolving painting projects, which “explicitly reflect a pop sensibility”.
