Endangered Ape by Ray Koh. All Rights Reserved. Ray Koh is a California based Artist and Filmmaker who conceptually paints, draws (and erases) using ocean water, time, and light.
Koh has discovered a new way to ‘conceptually draw and paint’; using ocean water, aerial cinematography and photography blended with a fine art approach to subject-matter. This combination creates works that are neither drawings, paintings, or photographs, but something altogether different.
Similar to an archaeologist, Koh removes unnecessary elements in order to extract/reveal just what he needs to communicate his intent and ideas (never adding anything that wasn’t foraged from the original source image). Koh uses color to reveal what we could not previously see. His subject-matter ranges from classical portraits, abstraction, a deep interest in food, and Mother Nature.
Koh considers his work 100% sustainable, organic, vegan, and local art.
