Young Masters caught up with Sun Ae Kim, a Korean-based ceramic artist who was shortlisted for Young Masters in 2014 and selected for Young Masters Revisited in 2010. She is a graduate of the Royal College of Art and now lives and works in Korea.
What have you achieved since participating in the Young Masters Art Prize?
Lots of things have happened since Young Masters, so I don’t know where to begin. I participated in Young Masters when I had just graduated with my MA from the Royal College of Art in 2010. Since then, I have gained international recognition in ceramic art. I recently featured alongside my works in Visa card commercials.
How was Young Masters part of making this happen?
Through participating in Young Masters, I sold some works and gained interest from prestigious collectors. I have participated in Young Masters twice already and I like the concept of the Art Prize and the possibility that I might reach new clients through it as well. The team are very supportive and provide valuable professional and personal advice.
Ceramic Artists are invited to apply for the Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize until 31 March 2017
