PETALING JAYA, May 30 — Kuala Lumpur’s Aureo Gallery recently featured an exhibition featuring gold paintings in 50 Golden Finites by South Korean artist Kim II Tae.
The exhibition which ended yesterday, featured gold paintings valued up to US$2 million (RM8.76million).
Renowned for being the first artist in the world to paint with 24-carat gold, Kim spent 11 years developing the unique art formula that ensures the everlasting radiance of his many paintings.
Some of Kim’s timeless masterpieces in the exhibition were accompanied by enchanting light projections and performances.
Smaller paintings such as the Golden Horse and Tree of Abundance are being showcased at the Glasshouse.
Two glamorous brands were featured in the exhibition in luxury camera manufacturer Leica and Mercedes-Benz dealer Hap Seng Star.
