Korean Gold Art by Kim IL Tae

12 - 18 May 2016



Curated by Eva McGaw and Tatiana Palinkasev

In this the first European exhibition of Korean gold art, artist Kim Il Tae will showcase twenty of his unique canvas works, painted in pure 24 Carat gold.

Following years of research and experiments, Kim Il Tae has developed a unique technique of painting, sculpting and etching in 24 Carat gold on canvas.



Kim Il Tae's paintings are influenced by Oriental philosophy, the timeless clarity of gold Buddha statues and a profound meditation on the themes of love and compassion. Gold is associated with durability and preciousness, and also carries values of respect, purity, and happiness.

Kim Il Tae has held solo exhibitions in China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea and Macau, and has gained great critical acclaim. He is now drawing significant attention in the USA following his interview in March 2015 in the New York Times, and has received numerous awards for his experimental artistic work. Among the collectors of his work are the singers Madonna and Psy, the UN General Secretary, Ban Ki Moon, Google's CEO, Eric Schmidt.
