Getting Graphic with Na Kim
The RYSE approach to art is always blending elements both inside and outside the art world boundaries. Na Kim is exactly this kind of artist, working with design and art equally and highly respected in both arenas. She created a one-of-a-kind mural that wraps around the EP Suite (our penthouse suite that takes up half of the top floor). The mural is a continuation of the artwork in her book, Set.
Using washi paper tape from Haru, a Japanese paper expert, she and her team created a precise series of shapes and angles that brings a contemporary edge to this pinnacle suite. These angles are matched by thin, 1 centimeter lines painted on the opposing wall to make for a totally immersive experience. From concept to execution to the way she worked with other artists’ work in the room, Na Kim has created a new body of work that is unparalled.
