After attending L’École des Beaux Arts in Paris and the California Institute of Arts Kai’s created his signature character “IF,” which stands for “Imaginary Friend”. IF can now be found in every single piece of Kai’s latest works. “IF” is a character of no color, sex or race, no physical/distinguishable traits which breaks all societal stereotypes and cultural divides. Kai’s inspiration for “IF” was to create a character that everyone can relate with, and to help communicate the universal issues that tie cultures together, such as love, money, time, happiness, success and the environment.
