  • About EAT ART

    The heart of Venice has always been its local artists. EAT ART will help ensure these artists are supported, integrated and remain at the center of our community.


    Starting on April 11th at WABI SABI VENICE, EAT ART will present a series of events to promote Venice artists work within restaurant spaces on Abbot Kinney. Our goal is to showcase the artists' work and provide an opportunity for people to meet the artists and schedule studio visits.


    April 11th - EAT ART Opening for Barbara Lavery

    June 13th - EAT ART Opening for Rohitash Rao

    September 11th - EAT ART Opening for Alejandro Gehry

    November 14th - EAT ART Opening for Sunny Bak & Robby Krieger


    Each monthly event will feature one Venice artist whose work will hang for one month in the restaurant. Artists will provide postcards/contact information to be distributed through the restaurant during the month.


    As more restaurants join the EAT ART effort, multiple artists will be featured in multiple locations. EAT ART diners can visit one restaurant for cocktails & appetizers, one for dinner and one for dessert. Signature cocktails and dishes will be created in the EAT ART theme.

  • EAT ART - Photographer Sunny Bak

    Sunny Bak

    "It's amazing what you can do in a small space." Since arriving in Venice in 1995, Sunny has always been a renter with a home studio, successfully transforming her space to accommodate her photo shoots. "I've done more stuff here than I thought possible."
    Sunny got started with photography thanks to her father, a journalist for the UN for a Korean newspaper. "My dad gave me my first camera, which was a Nikon rangefinder in 1972." As a teenager living in NYC, she would sneak out and head to Times Square to shoot celebrity candids. Eventually she landed in fashion photography, but transitioned to doing mostly celebrity portraits.


    Sunny's work is showing at Wabi Sabi, November 14th onwards.
