Kai & Sunny At Subliminal Projects

Aug 19, 2017 - Sep 16, 2017Subliminal Projects, Los Angeles

UK-based artist duo Kai & Sunny are preparing for their second solo exhibition at Subliminal Projects. The title of the show is Crossed Wave, and will showcase new works of archival ballpoint pen on paper and acrylic on primed aluminium panel. As part of the exhibition, the artists will collaborate once again with Subliminal Projects founder, artist Shepard Fairey, on an original pen piece to be featured in the exhibition.

The artists will also be releasing a screen print edition available in two color variations signed by Fairey and Kai & Sunny, to be released at the opening reception. Crossed Wave is comprised of two narratives; fluid deconstructed landscapes representing a calm isolation, and hard-edged geometrics exuding energy and optimism. These parallel concepts are characterized by the duo’s hallmark precision line-work, a slow methodic process of building individual thin lines upon each other creating tense kinetic compositions while a certain fragility remains. The tidal-like waves and intense sunbursts hint at the changing environment we live in and the fragile planet we all share. As part of the exhibition, they will be giving away four limited edition skate decks and a new Kai & Sunny print.
