On Saturday, April 14th, art enthusiasts had the unique opportunity to participate in a gallery walkthrough of Rinker Health Science Campus’ inaugural art exhibition, Artiscopic Cellular Art. This walkthrough was lead by the artist himself, Dr. Mohommad Kamal, a.k.a. KIMʘ.

Dr. Mohommad Kamal, a.k.a. KIMʘ (center), leads visitors on an insightful tour of the exhibition.


Guests enjoyed refreshments before and after the walkthrough.

A pathologist by day, KIMʘ creates stunning, naturally occurring images by using a microscope to explore human, animal and plant cells. Regarding his work as a pathologist and artist, KIMʘ states:

“It is not often that interesting shapes and patterns take place. I am doing my job and only focus on the task at hand. But then, like when a coal miner unexpectedly discovers a diamond, the feeling of excitement is overwhelming! I just can’t wait to share its beauty with the world.”

The artist shared personal anecdotes and inside information about his art and process.

The Leatherby Libraries is excited to have partnered with Schmid College of Science & Technology, Crean College of Health and Behavioral Sciences, and the School of Pharmacy to present this landmark project. The exhibition is currently on view until May 30th, 2018 in the Health Sciences Study Commons at
Chapman University’s Harry and Diane Rinker Health Science Campus in Irvine, CA.

Dr. Janeen Hill, Founding Dean of Crean College of Health and Behavioral Sciences and Professor of Health Sciences, gives the opening remarks to KIMʘ’s presentation.
