Krista Kim is a contemporary artist and founder of the Techism movement since 2014, promoting the confluence of art and technology, and technological innovation as a medium to further the development of digital humanism. She believes
that artists must participate at the vanguard of technological innovation in order to contribute to the creation of future culture during this pivotal period of technological innovation, adaptation, and disruption. In her Digital Consciousness series, Krista gathers digital images of LED lights to digitally paint
and manipulate them using multiple software to create her artwork, a technique that she has developed since 2012. Krista was the chosen artist by Creative Director Olivier Lapidus of Lanvin for the fall-winter 2018 collection. Five of her artworks were selected as the inspiration of the color cards and digitally printed fabrics and leather goods for the collection. This groundbreaking collaboration introduced the digital gradient trend into the fashion world, which is now copied by other brands. The Krista Kim sneakers and handbags were sold out of Lanvin shops worldwide before the end of the season.
