Kisung Koh uses his art to open gateways into nature’s spiritual dimensions and explores the intimate connections he has built with wildlife during his lifetime. Drawing heavily on the memories and dreams provided to him by the sheer awe inspiring spectacles he has witnessed in the great outdoors, Koh pays tribute by creating imagery that is suggestive of the metaphysical energies and bonds which can exist between two living creatures, even when interacting from a distance. Over the years, Koh has had the honour of coming in close contact with many wild animals in their natural habitats, and has become aware of these energies, which have manifested themselves to him with an ethereal majesty. Through his art, Koh captures the essence and beauty of the natural world, and reminds us that our relationships with it are often more precious and rewarding than we sometimes take the time to remember.
Kisung Koh was born in 1985 in South Korea, where he lived until 2006, when his family moved to Canada. Since becoming a professional artist, Koh has exhibited his art around the world and has become a much sought after name within the New Contemporary Art scene.
