Kai is an English born, New Zealand raised artist working and living in Melbourne. He works on web based animation, music videos, 3D stills, and plenty more. Kai is self taught in all respects of what he does. He is the product of online tutorials, trial and error and the creative people around him.
His work can be seen across the Australian Open throughout all 3 arena’s at the event and has recently produced video’s for Radio New Zealand, Cup Of Kings App, IceBreak and Szymon’s “Blue Coloured Mountain”.
Radio NZ got in touch with me to produce a video for them as part of a series they were doing to promote awareness around environmental challenges that we face today. The first hurdle for me was to find a way to present something that felt so naturally unaesthetic (a plastic bag) in a beautiful way.
In a way that I could use it as almost a protagonist in a story through which it could dance across colourfully illustrated frames. A stark contrast in juxtaposition with the narrative content and the gruff and oily textures we see embedded in various objects.
