The dance inspired visual art of BAKi

Opiom Gallery is proud to present «Illusion», the first European solo show of South Korean artist BAKi, aka Park KwiSub. Former dancer at the National Ballet of Korea, he has for many years worked as its official photographer before giving free reign to his artistic creativity. He now orchestrates his own pictorial universe, fragmented into three series entitled «Ink», «Vision» and «Shadow». Awarded the Anna Pavlova Prize for Photography, BAKi crafts a unique language; From a vehicle for movement and emotion, he transcends the body to a malleable and sensory medium instinctively comprehended by an imagination inherent to a both personal and collective history.
