About my work:
Aaron Kai's meticulously executed, photorealistic film-inspired artwork has been featured globally from Hollywood to Tokyo to commemorate high-profile landmark events including Blade Runner: The Final Cut 25™ Anniversary, the Bette Davis Centennial, and the Jules Verne Film Festival.
GQ magazine hailed him "The Da Vinci of leather-jacket art," for his custom hand-painted Kai Artwear line -- his garments have been donned by celebrated singers Sade and En Vogue, movie-fx masters H.R. Giger and Stan Winston, and iconic director James Cameron.
Though his early career was in New York via the high fashion industry as an illustrator for Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein, Kai has always drawn inspiration from the movies. He relocated to L.A., set up a home studio, and success followed with feature film poster design, commissions, and his passion projects including cinematic collages in oils and acrylics. Prominent collectors of his works include Ridley Scott, Harrison Ford, and Clint Eastwood.
Kai continues to accept assignments for canvas and garments, creates film advertising art, and presents his displays at special events and pop-culture conventions such as San Diego Comic-Con. His inspirations are now playing in theaters everywhere.
"Life... is in the details." -- AK
