Esther Kim is a Korean-American artist. She was born in Los Angeles and spent her teenage years in Tokyo. She has been working as a creative for over ten years combining illustration, design, character licensing, art direction and gallery art to create her own world. She is the creator of the character esther bunny. She creates custom esther bunny artwork that is applied to many categories including and not limited to fashion accessories, apparel, cosmetics and home goods. Her work is at once cute but knowing and has a sophisticated girlishness informed by her love of fashion and multicultural background. Having spent many years in Tokyo and Los Angeles her East meets West culture girl aesthetic is a natural extension of her identity struggles and interests. Her multi-cultured talents have given her a unique sensitivity and led to her work being used in international cities such as Tokyo, Seoul, and London. Recently her work was on a billboard for Parco in Shibuya with model Yuka Mizuhara, a capsule collection for cult British brand Lazy Oafs, and had her Seoul debut solo art show at Lotte Department store in 2017.
