Romon Kimin Yang aka Rostarr is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in New York City. He works in a range of mediums including painting, abstract calligraphy, large scale murals and experimental filmmaking. Always creating in a spontaneous manner, he is continually striving to find freedom within style, medium and form, and build upon the iconographic visual language he terms Graphysics, a word that exemplifies the geometric dynamism characteristic of his work.
