   Born in Canada in 1981, Casper Kang lives & works in Seoul, South Korea. He draws inspiration from the corpus of traditional Korean imagery, reinterpreting & presenting the history of his mother culture as a formal recollection of an alternate past.

   The Canadian-born, Seoul based Architect-turned-painter's attraction to the cultural legacy of Korea could very well be described as a child-like fascination that is remarkably uninformed & impartial. His formal intent is objective rather than interpretive, resulting in a detached view towards what the images in his work might traditionally signify or represent. He appropriates & alters (sometimes beyond recognition) traditional Korean imagery in an attempt to create virtual possibilities of his cultural heritage from a perspective that is both antiquated & modern, outside of the restraints of convention or history.

   Some of Casper's art utilizes lenticular printing to show depth & varying patterns based on the viewers' perspective.

Lenticular printing is a multi-step process consisting of creating a lenticular image from at least two existing images, & combining it with a lenticular lens. This process can be used to create various frames of animation (for a motion effect), offsetting the various layers at different increments (for a 3D effect), or simply to show a set of alternate images which may appear to transform into each other.
