Interview with Ian Kuali`i

Ian Kuali`i’s creative process is "The meditative process of destroying to create". Blending the contrasting elements of loose Urban Contemporary techniques with detailed hand cut paper to manifest unique compositions. His work is a balance between the rough and delicate while exploring ideas of modern progress dependent on a foundation in one’s own history. His art is influenced by his ancestral ties to the Southwest United States and Hawaii, as well as esoteric symbolism, mysticism, global politics and themes of urban decay.
