Kenny Yong-soo Son was born in South Korea and migrated to Australia in 1996. After graduating from Sydney College of the Arts in 2010 with a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Jewellery & Object), Son went on to complete a Masters in Design at the University of Technology, Sydney. Son then travelled to South Korea for a six-month intensive mentorship training under Sung Joon Cho, a designated master in Korean metalcraft. This was a significant period in Son’s training.

Son currently lives and works in Sydney. His practice, which he established soon after returning from this mentorship, is strongly shaped by the combination of his varied training experiences. He has already established a reputation for the quality of his work and has several significant exhibitions behind him.
