Invisible NYC is proud to host, High Contrast, a solo-exhibit by mixed-media artist Dosa Kim. Dosa Kim is an Atlanta based designer and illustrator. Most of his artwork and design reflect United States southern culture informed by traditional and quasi-traditional Asian aesthetic and compositional formats. Currently, Dosa consults for various promoters, advertising agencies, and clothing lines in Atlanta, Georgia. His widely recognized work can be seen in various galleries and group shows in the US south.

Dosa moved to Atlanta during his freshman year in high school. He went on to study graphic design at the Art Institute of Atlanta. After working at a local design studio for a year, he continued his education at the University of Georgia, studying Digital M edia and Computer Animation. Since then he has been exploring the content of his art rather than limiting his designs to the selling of products or services. Commenting on current social issues, Dosa’s art can be best described as whimsical, dark and sometimes minimal. Although much of Dosa’s work has shadowy undertones, he emphasizes the notion of hope, the notion that outside forces will carry the subject matter and the viewer to his/her enlightened destination. This ideal is represented in numerous metaphorical ways and is carried out through his logo, which bears the text: “Some of us will find our way home.”

From sketches to vectors and acrylics, Dosa combines a multiple of disciplines to create his pieces. His show at Invisible NYC has a fluid narrative theme of loss, loneliness, and longing. These themes are frequent topics in Dosa’s work but the new works presented at Invisible NYC go beyond the recurring characters seen in his older work. These pieces ar e also unique in their sheer size, redefining the space and ! covering the gallery walls.

Dosa’s works are bold and graphic. Keeping color to a minimum he tends to employ primarily black, white, and red. His paintings are striking and sophisticated with the minimal palette and splashes of color. Equally sophisticated are his compositions that tend to be asymmetrical and full of movement. Dosa is also part of the artist group Sons of the South. For more information about this artist or to view examples of his work, please,, or
