Just like his special skill and craft of painting using a mixture of oil and 24-Carat gold on canvas, Kim Il Tae’s story is also unique, filled with many periods of formation through tremendous struggle, a story that prompted us to have an insightful sit-down with the man some weeks. Kim is the first and only artist in the world to do what he does and by no means is it an easy feat to achieve, considering gold’s soft, malleable and ductile properties as an element.

Enjoy our chat with the man himself in the video below.
