Wook Kim was born in Seoul, Korea and raised in the United States.
His passion for textile design first emerged while a student at the
Rhode Island School of Design. Wook continued to hone his craft
as a designer at Sunbury Textile Mills in New York, and later as
a graduate student at Cranbrook Academy of Art.
Wook considers art an integral presence in the every day.
His wall coverings, eschewing distinctions made between “art” and
the “decorative arts,” reflect his philosophy. His limitless inspirations
range from a mix of decorative histories, entomology, tessellation,
the urban landscape and beyond.
