• Aviation art by an aviation enthusiast •

Artwork on Volitant Visuals was created with character in mind. I love the side profiles, oil paintings and sketches I've seen from many other talented aviation artists. They are lovely, but I thought about how differently I can go with aviation art. What you see on Volitant is definitely a more energetic and vibrant direction, with a sense of flowing visual energy with the way the details are created. I love to capture a sense of motion with my artwork, to make it feel alive.

MY STORY & BACKGROUND

Photo taken at San Jose International Airport during the return of British Airways on June 13th, 2022.

Welcome to Volitant Visuals. My name is Paul Kim, artist behind the artwork. I am a graphic designer by trade, employed in the aviation industry with an International airport ground handling company. Volitant Visuals is my personal business to sell my aviation art to the world.

 

I started drawing at the age of 3. My earliest memory of drawing is sketching the large Ford trucks that drove around the neighborhood. During my elementary years, I would stay at my grandparents' farm afterschool, which resided 30 minutes south of SeaTac International Airport. I vividly remember seeing the loud and proud Boeing 747-100s rising into the sky, almost seemingly at an incredibly slow pace due to their size, and then banking west to head to Asia. They were so notoriously loud, but beautifully polished with their bare-metal liveries.

During the same time I also lived in close vicinity to the McChord Air Force base in the Tacoma area, which catered to the old C-141 Starlifters, C-130s, various fighter jets, and even the occasional B-2 Spirit. Seeing those B-2 bombers fly low overhead definitely startled me, for I had yet to realize a triangle could fly.

In high school, I took the flight program and studied advanced science and mathematics behind flight, along with a brief course in flight communications and the basics of flying a Cessna 172. During college, however, I studied automotive design as my interest was more in art and industrial design. While my pursuit in an automotive career ended, I had acquired quite a bit of skills, mostly self-taught, that assisted in an aviation industry occupation.

I joined the industry as a graphic designer and marketing manager for an airport ground operations company. Projects focused on marketing materials and branding assets, in addition to poster art to showcase the operations at each nationwide station.

For a very long time, I had struggled to find a way to sell my art, whether the issue was the artwork itself, the subject matter, or the challenges of starting up a business. Working on the marketing posters for my day job gave me the idea that I can create my own aviation art and sell them through my own business. After many months of preparations, field research, brainstorming and compiling artwork, Volitant Visuals was born.

Cyber attacks and art theft are getting more and more common these days, and unfortunately it is incredibly tough to fight against it. While it is common sense to buy from a trustworthy seller, it can be tricky to tell. Buying from a seller who is passionate and cares about what they sell is always a safe bet.

All of my artwork on Volitant Visuals is only available for purchase here. By shopping on Volitant Visuals, you are buying directly from the artist. The only middleman is the print center that manufactures the quality prints and ships them efficiently to your door. Shop with trust and confidence at Volitant Visuals!
