Oan Kim is a French-Korean saxophonist, filmmaker and photographer. He is a multi-faceted contemporary artist, as comfortable in galleries as in concert halls, who plays a unique music beyond the boundaries of jazz. As a musician within numerous bands (Film Noir, Chinese Army), it was during lockdown that he composed and recorded his first solo album, Oan Kim & The Dirty Jazz. French media have called him "The missing link between Portishead and Che Baker". As a filmaker, his recent documentary, The Man Who Paints Waterdrops, about his father, famous Korean painter Kim Tschang-Yeul, won the silver horn prize at Poland's 61st Krakow Documentary Film Festival and the Emerging Documentary Filmmaker Award at the DMZ international festival in Korea. As a photographer, Kim has had more than a dozen gallery and museum solo exhibitions since 2000 in Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Seoul, and Macao. He has developed an approach to the medium that is neither strictly documentary, nor purely conceptual, re-questioning the balance of these elements with each new series he produces.
