Since the late 1990s, through his series such as The Beginning of Painting–In the Corner, Similar Wall, Same Wall, Daily Life, Vinyl Painting and Still Life, Kim has been continuing painterly studies in relation to ways of thinking, exchanging conversations with his works, throwing monologue-like compound questions on the artist himself and his everyday life, order within objects, and the relationship between the fundamental elements of painting and images. Conceived in 2003, Mendrami is a still life series, representative of the artist, in progress till today.

Currently, his works are included in the collections of Leeum Samsung Museum of Art, The National Museum of Contemporary Art, Art Sonje Center, Kumho Museum of Art, Busan Museum of Art, Hite Collection, Soma Museum, Hana Bank and more.
