Kim Cogan is a Korean-born American painter residing and working in San Francisco. His work explores the boundaries between realism and memory. His rooftop panoramas, composed city scenes and impressionistic figures are grounded in explorations of place and characterized by an atmospheric intentionality. By using light, color and contrast, he exploits paint's tactile form to create a mood and convey emotional content. Cogan's work captures the passage of time and vanishing landscapes, the relationship between structured and natural forms and the iconography of our memories.  


Cogan's award-winning paintings have been exhibited to great acclaim nationwide. His work has appeared in ARTnews Magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle, Artforum, American Arts Quarterly, Harper's Magazine, Playboy and American Art Collector Magazine.
