Las Vegas based artist Kai was discovered by the world-renowned marine life artist Wyland who recognized her talent sculpting extreme cakes on the reality television series “Cake Boss” and encouraged her to transform her talent to painting and permanent sculpting (Pictured: “Curled up in Paradise” by Kai).
The “Color of Love” Live Painting Exhibition by Kai will host a live painting featuring a new art creation from ‘inception to finish’ each day. In addition, Kai is often asked to create custom art on the spot – in various mediums – that she will also create. Art by Kai will have nearly 15 pieces at the gallery from February 11 – 18, 2019 with pieces ranging from $4k to $24k. The show is called “Color of Love” and is dedicated to Kai’s late Hawaiian Grandmother, Pualani, a creative source and inspiration for the artist.
Ka’iulani Wahinenoilama known as KAI, is a Hawaiian artist born in Utah and now lives in Las Vegas, Nev. Being from the family of the world famous singer Don Ho, she grew up in a culture filled with artful music and her style emanates her culture and expresses the vibrant Aloha Spirit that is evident in everything she creates.
As a child KAI was inspired by the natural beauty of the world around her and was driven to create from deep within her soul. She is a self-taught artist with no professional training which gives her the ability to naturally create through feeling and is continually evolving and reinventing herself. KAI keeps her collectors awestruck, never knowing what she will create next.
The artist believes that beauty is found in the most humblest of places, and is especially drawn to the beautiful imperfections of life. Through her paintings we experience an extensive and fascinating perspective. It is evident, by those affected with intense emotions when they experience the feeling behind her art.
KAI is one of the very first artists to have an exhibit on display at a Smithsonian Natural History Museum and she continues to push the boundaries of the art world. Truly living up to the meaning of her given name, Ka’iulani “Highest point in heaven”.
