Kai & Sunny are an artist duo based in London whose work appears in many artistic contexts. Their intricate, natural and sometimes sinister style has led them to collaborate with Alexander McQueen and has won them numerous accolades including a 2012 DA&D Design Award, and book covers with author David Mitchell. The artists have exhibited internationally, showing at Haunch Of Venison London, and have recently been included in the Victoria & Albert Museum print archive collection. The duo is currently exploring natural forms with large-scale monotone works through print making.
For Designboom.com the artist explained how they share or divide the work on a series or single piece: “Our process always starts with our ideas. we come up with ideas together and we then figure out between us on how to achieve them. we sketch out our thoughts and research elements. we then refine these sketches on the computer sunny often works on the earlier refining and I would work on the later refining. the process often goes back and forth a few times until we get to a stage that we are both happy with.”
Past exhibitions include Stolen Space Gallery, London; Haunch of Venison, London; the Southbank Centre, London; Pertwee Anderson & Gold, London and Subliminal Projects, Los Angeles.
