My name is Enzo H. Kim, raised in Monterey Park, CA. I utilize my own creativity with inspiration from other artists and mediums into my custom artwork! I’m currently attending the University of Oregon for my Product Design BFA degree, and alongside my interests, I implement what I learn into my own work and style as I go, always striving for improvement! I aim to make unique works that you won’t see anywhere else in the customizing world.
I started customizing back in 2018 when I was a junior in high school, when I realized I didn’t really enjoy many of the colorways that sneaker brands were putting out as general releases. I was a huge basketball sneakerhead back then, and I’d always be scrolling through different websites to check out the latest releases I could possibly wear while hooping for my school team, when it dawned upon me that I could be making my own with Angelus paints! After a couple months into painting, Angelus reached out to me to film my first tutorial video with them, and that would kick off my real start as a custom artist. From the get-go, I’ve been on the receiving end of incredibly supportive friends, family, teammates and mentors, and I’m thankful to say I’ve had the support from my friends over at Angelus as well.
I’ve lived the past several years with the saying “Outwork Everyone” in mind, a quote that one of my basketball coaches, now a lifetime friend, has driven into me since my junior high days. I plan to stay true to that saying and strive for improvement in my custom artwork, school, and everything I do for a long, long time to come! I’m incredibly proud and grateful to now be a part of the Angelus family as a sponsored artist. Always thankful for your support! #OWE
