Daniel UM

Daniel UM was born in Seoul, South Korea in 2001. He obtained his BFA in illustration at Parsons School of Design in 2024, and currently lives and works in New York. Influenced by his early experience of traveling and living in different countries, Um's work captures slices of the felt isolation and solitude in a stream of consciousness. Through the overlapping sensations and imaginations of intertwined worlds, the artist combines intimate memories and natural landscapes in a dreamlike, whimsical space. The isolated protagonist, who appears and disappears, often hovers in the lush and hazy nightscape constructed by dense and repetitive brushstrokes, where the artist's personal consciousness and inner emotions are enveloped in a sense of quiescence.
