About Kai


Kai McCall was born in 1968 and received a BA from University of Western Ontario in 1991.

Influenced by 17th century Dutch Masters, literature and film, he likes to envision his painted figures as characters caught in a work of fiction, confronted with challenges and conflicts as they navigating the settings he has created for them.

He doesn’t make detailed drawings before he start painting, so his paintings evolve gradually and directly on canvas. His meticulous style of layering thin coats of paint, borrowed from Golden Age painters, produces the illusion of shimmering fabrics and translucent flesh.

His work has been exhibited across Canada and in London, England.

Nice! I like the whole body of work, actually... I checked out the artist's website. Something about it also brings to mind Fragonard and Poussin. ?

Looks Like John Currin,s work - imitation is the sincerest form of flattery !
WOW ! very flattering to John !
