The aim of both projects is to bring art and artists together with new and seasoned collectors from across Asia and the world.
FEATURED ARTIST: KIM MYOUNG-JIN - SOUTH KOREA
Kim Myoung-Jin (b. 1978) is one of Korea's rising contemporary young artists. His work aims to blur the boundaries between graffiti, drawing and illustration, creating fantastical and provocative pieces that fill the canvas with energy and excitement. More profoundly, the artist endeavours to create a "kingdom" of his own particular symbology, a place where through symbols he is able to express his innermost thoughts. Working in acrylic and oil pastel, Kim draws, paints and smudges various images, shapes and letters - rendering thoughts and feelings into broken lines and dots. It is with his new language that the artist speaks, a visual language that communicates on an emotional level.
Kim Young-Jin graduated from Daegu Art University in Gyeongsan, Korea and has worked as an art director and instructor. He has exhibited his work in solo shows in various galleries in Seoul and has taken part in art fairs in Singapore, Hong Kong, Belgium and the USA.
Represented by Galerie GAIA, South Korea.
FEATURED ARTIST: PARK JI SOOK - SOUTH KOREA
Park Ji Sook (b. 1963) expresses the dynamic energy of life on her canvas. Working with pencil, pen or ink in combination with acrylic, the artist submits to the spontaneous creative process - allowing the network of lines, dots and organic forms to flow freely onto her canvas. Her works are depictions of communicative networks that intertwine, interconnect and bind us to nature. Botanical motifs represent natural processes such as breathing and circulation found in organic forms while lines and dots characterize the life cycle of growth to decay. Ultimately, humans and nature are bound infinitely on the interwoven lines of life.
Park has an MFA and a PhD from Hongik University in Seoul. She has exhibited in 57 solo shows and has taken part in over 300 group exhibitions in Korea and around the world. Her work has been collected by various entities including: the National Hyundai Museum and Lego Korea.

FEATURED ARTIST: MITCHELL SCHORR - USA
Mitchell Schorr (b.1972, New York) is a world-recognised urban mural painter, having painted 3-D murals around New York's parks for over a decade. The "Da Race" mural series, which began in New York, pits a variety of racing cars against a New York City ice cream truck, with the vehicles exchanging leads, falling behind and catching up again as the race moves from location to location. The ice cream truck represents the feelings of joy and innocence invoked during childhood. In 2005, Schorr created the "Da Race to the East" in Hong Kong, where he incorporated the local Hong Kong taxi into the race.
Schorr attended the Carnegie Mellon School of Art in Pittsburgh, followed by a year at the Lorenzo De Medici Italian Institute of Art in Florence. He received his BA from Ithaca College and then moved on to the New York Academy of Art. His canvas works have been exhibited in the USA, Europe and Asia and are part of the Detroit Institute of Art's permanent collection.

CURRENT EXHIBITION: LIMITED EDITION6 October - 31 November, 2016
Distinct in character, style and artistic medium, artists, represent individuals whose evolution from humble artist to internationally recognised figure in the art world recounts a larger story of art as an identifiable and accessible brand. Having built their brand persona through a series of thematically unique and distinctive works that have withstood the test of time, these artists have managed to blur the line between art obtainable by the elite and art available to all.
