About Kai

Kai has been living in Los Angeles (originally from NY) for the past four years. He has a background in fine art & video and moved to LA where he completed the graduate film program at Art Center College of Design. Rather than focus on file, he is instead incorporating video and cinematic elements into his paintings.

The subject of his work is the portrait/figure and the universal emotion carried with it. Drawing inspiration from cinema, fashion photography and silent films, Kai fuses video and stop motion with his paintings to create a new experience for the viewer, showcasing the artistic process as well as the work itself.

"how long have you been doing art for? and what was your most favourite iconics?"

"You don't even know the half of this kid. He'll take your idea, mix it with 2/3 of his own and produce a work that is completely like what you want and unlike anything you've seen. Fear his skill."

"Visited Kai's website to see that his paintings have evolved hugely since a year ago. His portraits are beautifully articulated, and skillfully rendered. His color palette has diversified and become increasingly bold and distinctive. His work maintains an undefinable, yet powerful emotional quality that is rarely matched in contemporary painting."

"It stirs the parts of my being that have been hollow for quite some time. Thankyou for filling a void. -Rain Poet"
