Krista Kim is the founder of the Techism art movement, which calls for greater interdisciplinary dialogue and collaboration between innovators of the Tech industry and artists in order to create a more balanced culture of humanism through the arts in the digital age. Kim’s work is a response to our constant exposure to LED lights through our devices. Her work expresses digital consciousness and questions our current aesthetic principles. Kim is interested in digital technology and its revolutionary effects on human perception, media, social structures, and communication. She is based in Toronto and exhibits regularly in New York and Paris, and in art major fairs worldwide.
Kim’s art is a space for meditation and healing for the viewer. The artist is passionate about creating public art installations with this purpose in mind. Her light and sound installation have a profoundly positive effect, people feel a sense of peace, healing, and wellbeing when they view her installations and paintings. «The role of the artist is to always strive to answer this question in their work. Every piece of art should strive to interpret beauty and the meaning of beauty in the world. It is an evasive answer, and one that may never be answered, but I shall always strive to answer it, or perhaps, reveal of a glimmer of truth in the answer.»
Krista Kim’s work has been selected as part of Nuit Blanche, Paris. Le Palais de Tokyo and Le Musée d’Art Moderne of Paris have chosen to exhibit the sound and light installation called 8x8, a LED screen work (12 meters x 3 meters). It demonstrated the positive effects and interaction of Krista Kim’s art with the public. Krista Kim was also the inspiration for Lanvin’s Fall Winter 2018-2019 fashion collection, where five of her artworks were seen throughout the collection on several looks and accessories.
Roger Dubuis the prestigious Swiss watch manufacturer is governed by an audacious mindset that drives innovation while cultivating profound respect for traditions.

For the opening of its new pop up in Miami Design District, the watchmaker is collaborating with Krista Kim. In the last decades, art history has been marked by the ‘Light art’ which is represented by artists like James Turrell or Olafur Eliasson. Krista Kim’s work shows the power of color and presents a new approach of ‘Light art’. For the reveal of the Excalibur Series in Florida, resulting from the collaboration with the world renown automobile brand Lamborghini, the artist has created a new light treatment on the car with an infinite palette of colors… Light is the new ink!
TheArtpark is a new space dedicated to the theme of mobility, supporting this thought process on a global scale, through exhibitions, events and editions. Mobility is a timeless theme, which has found itself amplified in our current world where everybody is constantly on the move. Artists are evolving to embrace the unprecedented lifestyles of the new nomads who travel around the globe, and mobility has never been so scrutinized. Mobility is an intrinsic part of humanity. If we take the concrete example of the car, this mobility, associated with the machine, has acquired an iconic status in the quest for independence and is sometimes a sign of its driver’s status.
The Mobility of Light is an exhibition at TheArtpark, TheArsenale Miami, curated by Jenny Mannerheim and Philippe Combres.
