Bang Hai Ja is a painter, poet and calligrapher born in 1937 in Seoul. She has lived in Paris since 1961, and it is the capital’s cultural diversity that stokes her inspiration. The strength of her work resides in the light she allows to come through using the different transparencies of her textiles. Pigments, materials and natural elements are sourced from all around the world, representing the connection between West and East that she constantly highlights in her work. She reappropriates the world, depicting her admiration for it with subtlety, softness and abstraction.
