It is still while pursuing their mobility-based theme that Philippe Combres, Jenny Mannerheim and Patrice Meignan, welcomed their gallery’s new highlightsduring a dinner and pop up unveil hosted by Roger Dubuis. The highlight of the event was the colorful artwork of Krista Kim, who did a live car wrap of a Lamborghini with one of her paintings.
Hanged on the largest walls of the gallery, the colorful digital paintings catch all its visitors’ gaze, and sometimes even hypnotizes. But like any good hypnoses, you don’t realize how long you’ve been living a dream.
“Light is the New Ink,” wrote Kim on her website.
The light artist is the founder of the techism art movement: the dialogue between high technology and art. Kim’s work expresses digital consciousness and questions our current aesthetic principles. “The contribution of art using digital technology will create a more connected and humane culture,” she said for Voidline, “which will affect how our society chooses to use and innovate digital technology for the future.”
Kim works questions all human relation to digital technology. Her art has been proven to have a positive effect, giving its audience a feeling of peace, healing and well-being.
Before settling at the Art Park, Kim has seen her work exhibited all over the world, notably in the most respected art museum of Paris: the Palais de Tokyo, le Musée d’Art Moderne. Her work has inspired for former Lanvin’s artistic director Olivier Lapidus for his limited fall-winter collection of 2018-2019, where five of her artworks were seen throughout the collection on several looks and accessories. The collection was a huge success and completely sold out.
During their welcoming party at the Art Park, last Saturday, it was also the occasion for prestigious watchmaker Roger Dubuis to partner with the light artist. For the reveal of the Excalibur Series in Florida, resulting from the collaboration with the world renown automobile brand Lamborghini, Krista Kim has created a new light treatment on the car, covering it with an infinite palette of vibrant colors. Most people already consider Lamborgini cars to be works of art, but undoubtedly, Kim made it a masterpiece.
