RAY KOH is a California based Creative Director specializing in Fine Art and Filmmaking.

Koh’s fine artwork utilizes drone technologies which allows him to conceptually draw and paint using ocean water, time, and light. However, unlike most drone enthusiasts, Koh works more akin to an archaeologist where his brush is more an eraser that removes unnecessary elements so that only extracted subject-matter remains. His work focuses on primordial artistic concepts and subject-matter expressed through artist portraits, drawing lines, still life, and abstracts.

More than ever, Koh believes that we must deal with the ramifications of technologies that accelerate our lives into nearly unsustainable speeds. With the increasing hyper saturation of digital content, the dumbing down of ourselves, our own deprogramming into automation, how do we rise above this relentless ebb and flow? How do we create a new American Art that reconciles the loss of the original to mechanical reproduction (i.e. photography, film) in favor of new subject-matter? These are some of the issues that my work attempts to resolve through creative mediation.
