Krista Kim        

Contemporary & Digital Artist; Founder of Techism; Metaverse Editor for Vogue Singapore

Krista Kim is a contemporary artist and the founder of Techism. Techism is an art movement that reconciles technological innovation with the creation of art. Kim has exhibited on the iconic square of the Palais of Tokyo Museum and the Museum of Modern Art of Paris. Currently, she is the ambassador of SuperWorld, an augmented reality virtual world that allows users and brands to create, discover, and monetize.

Kim is founder of the Techism movement since 2014, promoting the confluence of art and technology, and technological innovation as a medium to further the development of digital humanism. She believes that artists must participate at the vanguard of technological innovation in order to contribute to the creation of future culture during this pivotal period of technological innovation, adaptation, and disruption. In her Digital Consciousness series, Kim gathers digital images of LED lights and manipulates them using multiple software to create her artwork, a technique that she has developed since 2012.

Forbes has described Kim as, “the new digital Rothko.” Kim is interested in the disruptive interpersonal and social effects of digital technology, as a force of distraction and segregation of people based on similar interests and likes through algorithms on social media. She seeks to communicate a transcendent, meditative experience for the viewer in digital visual language, which she describes as digital consciousness. Meditation is at the core of per practice and informs her philosophy and visual DNA.

Kim was the chosen artist by Lanvin for the fall-winter 2018 collection. Five of her artworks were selected as the inspiration for the colour cards and digitally printed fabrics for the entire collection. This groundbreaking collaboration introduced the digital gradient trend into the fashion world. The iconic Krista Kim sneakers and handbags were sold out of Lanvin shops worldwide at record sales.

Kim has lived in Seoul, Tokyo, and Singapore. She is exhibiting in New York, Paris, and worldwide art fairs. She earned her Masters of Arts Fine Arts from LASALLE College of the Arts / Goldsmiths, the University of London in 2014.
