Kai is a native Angeleno artist who at the young age of 14 pursued his passion for art, and the streets of Los Angeles became his canvas. Four years later, he accepted an offer to study at the California Institute of The Arts, the leading school in contemporary art, and L’ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris. His unique style and social commentary continues to set him apart from other street artists, and he has been featured worldwide. Who is "IF"? Kai created his signature character “IF,” which stands for “Imaginary Friend”. "IF" is found in every single piece of Kai’s 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
