WHILE gold and art have had a long history date back to Ancient Egypt using gold leaf, painting using 24k gold mixed with natural oils on canvas is certainly one of its first.

Kim Il Tae always wanted to carve a name for himself in the art world which has been dominated by the westerns.

He is the first and only artist in the world to have found a unique way to paint using a mixture of oil and 24-karat gold, the purest form of gold available, on canvas.
