Kim Baise is a Los Angeles -based artist and designer with a master's in printmaking and sculpture from NYU. Using papier mache and organic and repurposed materials, her mobile constructions and figurative assemblages embody the energy of her mark-making. While referencing traditional Cartoneria ice cream trucks, she-ra feminists, and crying eyes reveal her own visual narrative on the everyday. Kim has taken her personal aesthetic of bright colors and bold shapes to create woodblock prints that are fresh, modern, and raw. Instead of using a printing press, she uses a wooden spoon to press her images by hand (as taught by MOMA artist Zarina Hashmi). She is also a printmaking student of the great viscosity print inventor, Krishna Reddy.
