The eldest son of two Korean-born doctors, Tony nearly took a medical path himself, studying biophysics at Brown University and taking a year of medical school at Tulane. While doing lab work one day, Tony found himself more fascinated by his lab slides’ vibrant colors and contrasts than by their biological events. Today his work reflects this unique background: a scientific reverence for the essential elements of light, form, scale and composition combined with a playful yet daring joy in movement, energy and life.
Tony has contributed to publications such as L’uomo Vogue, W, British Harper’s Bazaar, Wonderland, Vogue Nippon and Vogue Korea and has collaborated with clients such as Bergdorf Goodman, Theory, Shiseido, Lacoste, Neiman Marcus, NARS, Maybelline NY, Cadillac and Jaguar. His celebrity portfolio includes work with Heidi Klum, Coco Rocha, Janet Jackson, Chloe Sevigny, Nelly, Isabel Lucas, Julianne Hough and Amy Adams, among many others.
Tony lives in New York’s Williamsburg neighborhood with his wife, Michelle, and daughter, Baker. He is a 20-year survivor of Hodgkin’s lymphoma and donates a portion of his studio proceeds to cancer research.
身为韩国出生的两位医生的长子，Tony Kim学在布朗大学就读生物物理学，差一点做了医生的他在实验室工作的某一天，突然发现更着迷于实验室幻灯片的鲜艳的色彩和对比而并非其生物特性。现今他的作品里反映了这一独特的背景: 对关键元素——光，形式，规模和组成的科学崇敬，并结合了运动，能量和生命中好玩又大胆的欣喜。
