Gold has always been associated with the power, beauty and cultural elite since the history of an ancient civilization.

SOFITEL Kuala Lumpur Damansara and Aureo Gallery present The Craftsmanship of Gold at Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara, a specially curated program of arts, gastronomy, and wellness expressed through gold.

As part of this initiative, Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara will be showcasing renowned South Korean artist, Kim Il Tae artworks through the sprawling lobby of the hotel between 2 July 2019 and 1 September 2019.

A contemporary artist driven by his passion for art, Kim Il Tae has taken gold art to a whole new level. Kim Il Tae is widely recognized as a pioneer artist who developed a distinct method to paint with 24k gold and oil on canvas.

Amongst his followings of prestigious collectors are the likes of Prince Michael Kent of the British Royal Family, PSY (Korean celebrity), Zhou Xun (Chinese artist) to name a few.

Aside from arts, Sofitel Kuala Lumpur Damansara also gets creative with their gastronomy offering with the introduction of the Taste of Gold Afternoon Tea, an exclusive creation by pastry guest chef Guillaume Destouches from Sofitel Abu Dhabi Corniche.

As its name suggests, the Taste of Gold Afternoon Tea gives you a taste of French sugary treats blends with gold effects from the icing sugar, gold leaf and flower designs that will compliment Kim Il Tae’s masterpieces.
